With two sleeps remaining until Art Works, we're only a handful of introductions away from acquainting you with the full complement of program presenters! This morning, we're introducing Ann Moxham, from the Teachers Registration Board of Tasmania šŸ™Œ

Title: Curating an Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) aligned portfolio of evidence for teacher registration.

During her virtual presentation, Ann will describe the TRB, Categories of Registration and tips for a successful portfolio and application . The focus will be participant driven, providing an opportunity for sharing and discussing questions and curiosities and offering suggestions and clarifications about the process.

She is a former member of AHISA, a current member of ACEL and an Associate Fellow of the Institute of Managers and Leaders. She has been the Principal of schools in two States of Australia, has established the first Australian curriculum International School in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, held leadership positions in high performing schools in five States of Australia.

ARTWORKS Professional Learning

TATA - Tasmanian Art Teachers Association
November 22 @ 8:30 am - 5:15 pm

Launceston, Tasmania 7248 Australia

Art works ā€“ visual art teacher professional learning @ Inveresk holds space for visual art teachers to attend to their own creative practice as artists and teachers through a day dedicated to making and responding. Please see Program Flyer.   1 day workshop ā€“ 8.30am to 5.15pm University of Tasmania School of Creative Arts and Media, Inveresk Campus, Launceston Friday 22 November 2019 For Non DoE enrolments, please complete Enrolment-form-External and email to pli@education.tas.gov.auĀ    Our Art works program draws from national and international recommendations for best practice in visual arts teacher professional learning. These recommendations have been carefully considered in relation to participant feedback from previous visual arts professional learning initiatives in Tasmanian to enable teachers across Kinder -12 to enact a personally attuned balance of making and responding across the day. The UNESCO Road Map for Arts Education (2010) tells us that teachers benefit from professional learning experiences which can enrich their teaching methods, and in-school projects that involve collaboration between artists, teachers and schools can cultivate powerful and transformative learning opportunities from and for all perspectives. Art Works acknowledges the importance of teachers engaging in their own making and responding experiences, and always refers to the ways in which art ā€˜worksā€™ to cultivate mindful, inclusive, accessible and culturally respectful and appropriate approaches to making meaning of the world, historically and into the future. When art teachers have the opportunity to engage in such collaborative professional learning experiences, art ā€˜worksā€™ to enable discipline knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions to be fostered in ways that empower and connect across the curriculum. Art Works offers a dedicated space within which teachers can instigate ongoing professional learning pathways with collaborators, where teachers can engage in reflection about their craft, and shape the direction and focus of content and activities they will take back to their classrooms.   Art Works is brought to you by the Tasmanian Art Teachers Association in collaboration with the University of Tasmania, the Department of Education and Professional Learning Institute https://pli.education.tas.gov.au/program/art-works-visual-art-teacher-professional-learning-inveresk/
