      Please Note:
      Schools who are participating in the 3-year PASMAP Research Project, are asked to register the participants they nominated in 2020, for the workshops.

      Session Information

      The Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP), is an early years mathematics program based on research evidence and designed to promote structural thinking, focusing student attention on spatial and numerical patterns.

      The project will research two areas of classroom-based mathematics teaching and learning:

      1. Teaching and Learning Mathematics Content
      The project will provide professional development for R-2 teachers to implement the Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) and Pattern and Structure Assessment (PASA) in their classrooms.

      PASMAP is an early year’s mathematics program developed in Australia, based on research evidence. PASMAP develops children’s awareness of pattern and structure in mathematics and is designed for classroom use, with an organised series of learning sequences and pathways that can be integrated into regular planning and teaching. PASA is the assessment tool developed for PASMAP. It is envisaged that PASMAP and PASA would supplement the existing Australian Curriculum requirements and integrate with other mathematics assessment and planning processes, including the Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment (EYNOA).

      2. Developing Children’s Dispositions for Intellectual Engagement with Mathematics
      The project will examine teachers’ use of a dispositional framework, to enable the identification and fostering of children’s intellectual engagement when learning mathematics.

      Participating schools and R- 2 teachers will undertake professional learning with one of the authors and developers of PASMAP and PASA, Professor Joanne Mulligan, and with the researchers, Dr Virginia Kinnear (Deakin University) and Dr David Moltow (UTAS) and CESA Leading Learning Consultants.

      The project will support participating teachers and schools to:

      • develop their knowledge of mathematics and pedagogies for teaching mathematics;
      • improve both mathematics and numeracy learning outcomes for students;
      • develop knowledge of ways to identify and support children’s dispositions to be intellectually engaged with mathematical learning;
      • develop research skills, including data collection and management;
      • support ongoing learning in their school context;
      • foster capabilities consistent with CESA’s Living, Learning, Leading framework

      The sessions for this research project will take place over 6 days and participation at all six days is required.

      Year 1 Teachers and Leaders of Learning new to the Phonics Screening Check


      Workshop Description

      The Year 1 Phonics Screening Check (PSC) is mandated in all CESA Diocesan schools in 2021, with Separately Governed Schools strongly encouraged to participate.  

      The PSC is a 5–7-minute assessment for children in Year 1. The check is undertaken with children 1:1 by their class teacher. It is a diagnostic tool used to provide information about how students in Term 3 of Year 1 are progressing in Phonics and Word Knowledge as per the Australian Curriculum.

      To ensure high quality and consistency of the data collection:

      • Year 1 teachers and Leaders of Learning new to the PSC in 2021 will be involved in half day training on how to use and analyse the PSC. Teachers and Leaders of Learning in regional areas are invited to register their interest as below and training and venue will be advised.
      • Year 1 teachers and Leaders of Learning who have completed the training previously will nominate and attend a 1-hour webinar to ensure consistency of the data collection.

        Core FOCI and Priorities

          If you need to know more about the CESA Crossways RE curriculum then this workshop is for you!

          This workshop consists of viewing and responding to three online modules. The three presentation modules will be uploaded in video format and accessible via MS Forms.  There will also be a MSTeams discussion with dates to be announced.  All modules must be completed and submitted by 9th July .  All information regarding the modules will be sent to registrants after the 19th of April. 

          This is designed for teachers new to teaching RE in 2021 or 2020, particularly those who either:

          • didn't undertake the full UniSA Catholic Studies Strand in their B.Ed
          • or those without completed Graduate Certificate in Catholic Education.

          The workshop goes beyond the mandated CESA Teacher Induction Module to explore the privilege of teaching Religious Education in a Catholic school, and will highlight your responsibilities, resources and practical considerations. We will look at the development of particular skills and dispositions in RE and how 'Enduring Understandings' are acquired alongside capabilities in questioning, interpreting, making meaning and dialoguing in Religious Education.

          This module will focus on:

          • the purpose of the learning area of Religious Education
          • the structure and features of CESA's redesigned Crossways RE curriculum
          • contemporary pedagogies for RE

          Workshop Description

          This innovative project is in partnership with NoTosh Limited. NoTosh has earned a reputation for its collaborative approaches with schools wanting to embed STEM practice that is as ubiquitous as technology. Led through a design process by NoTosh, the project will bring together CESA’s School Quality and Performance (SQP) Education Advisors and educators, to co-design a STEM Playbook of pedagogical tools which can be utilised when designing STEM learning opportunities. The STEM Playbook will become a unique digital artefact for educators to share back within their schools. Educators will engage in a two-day intensive workshop to design a STEM unit, which embeds the Design Thinking framework with the option of co-construction with their students. This unit is to be implemented in Term 2 by the educators, who will share the outcomes and lessons learnt in the final workshop. This final workshop will provide educators with the tools to scale and lead STEM learning within their schools.

          2021 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

          In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

          Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

          • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context.
          • Providing you and your team with strategies, and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

          Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

          The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

          30-40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.

          Professional Learning Communities at Work: Tailoring to School Context Workshop (half day follow up) with Gavin Grift

          Gavin Grift will guide school and regional teams in a half day workshop to scope, tailor and customise plans to create an effective, high functioning professional learning community in the context of participants’ schools or regions, in light of the Blueprint for Step Change document.

          Based on Learning by Doing and the Professional Learning Communities @ Work one day workshop (it is a prerequisite that at least one team member attended the 2019 day with Gavin or the 12 May 2021 day), participants are required to attend with at least one other team member. This half day working session will focus on developing a strategic plan of action to build a positive PLC culture and set the team up as a successful professional learning community. In this context, participants are encouraged to consider to which ‘team’ the plan of action relates (ie school leadership team, staff team, regional leaders of learning, principals’ regional cluster).

          Teams may choose to attend either the morning or afternoon session, with lunch available for all participants.

          Cost:  $100 (or $250 per team)
          (an invoice will be forwarded to participants by the CEO around the time of the event)

                      The “Inspire, Aspire and Transpire” Spotlight Sessions aim to provide a platform for schools to share high-quality practices, and provide an opportunity for middle years leaders to network and explore ways of contextualising best practices within their own schools.

                      Teacher Certification: Assessor Training

                      Highly Accomplished or Lead certified teachers, Principals, Deputy Principals, other school leaders, system coaches and system leaders are encouraged to undertake the AITSL Certification Assessor Training Program. Whilst the course is primarily to train assessors to meet the anticipated demand of teachers seeking certification, it will also inform participants about the process and requirements for certification. On that basis, it is excellent professional learning for teachers and leaders of learning at all levels.

                      As an assessor, individuals will gain a much richer insight into the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and how these can be used to:

                      • ·                Utilise and embed reflective practice
                      • ·                Improve the use of effective classroom observation and feedback
                      • ·                Evidence teacher impact on students, learning outcomes and teacher colleagues.

                      The program requires the successful completion of three online modules combined with three days of face to face workshops (attendance at all three face to face workshops is a requirement).

                      Workshop Description

                      The combined CESA and AISSA Term 2 Professional Learning Day will provide attendees with updated information about:

                      • VET for Secondary School Students in 2022
                      • alternative pathways to university for 2022 entry
                      • transition support programs available for school students in the final year of their secondary education
                      • career resources for students and schools
                      • an update from the SACE Board

                      The information is designed to assist you in your support of students transitioning from school and to be able to plan further for upcoming changes to subsidised VET. The day also includes a networking session, with facilitated discussion and sharing of resources, for those who attend in person.

                      Other staff in schools who provide information to support students in discerning their pathways from school or in making a successful transition from school, are also welcome to attend. You are encouraged to attend in person to maximise the value of the networking that occurs informally and in designated networking sessions. However, virtual attendance via Zoom will also be offered. Please note that the facilitated network session will not be available to virtual attendees.

                      A campus map and information about lunch will be provided to those who register to attend in person for the professional learning day.

                      For registrants who will attend virtually, a Zoom link will be provided closer to the day.
