Personal Pedagogy Program – Resources

Outlines of the 5 Sessions

 

5 Short Learning Sessions...

In the initial phase of this program, we will share 5 short face-to-face seminars supported by a number of on-line resources and reference materials for you to access in your own time.

The concept of personal pedagogy can cover a lot of different things. For me, session content and focus is on you, not your specific teaching practices – things like personal mastery, social and emotional teacher intelligence (SETI), connecting in classrooms, mindfulness, creating constructive cultures.

Here's an outline of the proposed content of each of the 5 after-school seminar sessions:

Aims of PPP...

The PPP will really be driven by you personally. What you take away from each of the face-to-face sessions and decide to try-out as a result from it, will be up to you.  You will identify your own learning paths, goals, activities, improvement actions and milestones, as we progress through the sessions.

I hope the program provides opportunities for you to do some of these things:

bullet

Think about what unique gifts, strengths and talents you bring to your teaching practice

bullet

Reflect on your own pedagogical style and approach and how it helps achieve the learning outcomes our students want and the teacher 'excellence' factors LHC looks for

bullet

Strengthen or rediscover your fascination and passion to improve your personal pedagogy

bullet

Re-imagine how your classrooms could operate, lessons unfold and your students engage

bullet

Enhance your personal mastery, mindfulness and social and emotional intelligence

bullet

Identify ways to be more present, authentic, mindful and engaged in your classrooms

bullet

Think of ways to cultivate more student-focus and engagement that inspires innovation and achievement and nurtures student aspirations

bullet

Feel calmer, happier, more emotionally balanced and better centred in their classrooms

bullet

Self-managing and empower themselves to map out their own PP learning goals

bullet

Challenge your mental models of personal pedagogy and how they affect outcomes you get

bullet

Contemplate your role and contribution as a creator and custodian of our culture

bullet

Think about how you apply Lourdes teaching and learning principles in your classrooms

Session Supports...

Our short face-to-face sessions don't provide us with much learning time.  To expand your potential learning space the PPP includes some additional learning support options to extend your learning time and pathways for those interested.

These optional extensions will be provided in stages during and following the initial 6-week period the face-to-face sessions are being held. Resources will be made available through this dedicated web-space, accessible through menu links as above and alerted via email as materials come on-line:

bullet

Pre-read and post-session articles, self assessments and self-reflection activities

bullet

Each session underpinned by a self-coaching/goal-setting model for those interested

bullet

Each session followed with optional self-assessment inventories and goal-setting tool

bullet

Self-coaching guides for each session (on-line/PDF) with key topics and tools built up progressively over the 5 sessions

bullet

Pre-recorded sessions/pod-casts/slideshows  to watch afterwards

bullet

Email communications inter-session to encourage personal reflection/try-out actions’

bullet
