    A leaders professional learning community to support Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation  (Port Pirie Program)


    This is a leadership development and professional learning community designed to support leaders in developing deeper understandings of how to connect Catholic Identity, Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation and school culture. In 2020 this will use Alice Camille’s book Listening to God’s Word as an inspiration for considering new expressions of staff formation that meet contemporary needs, enhance core priorities of the school and enable effective leadership. This book delivers a contemporary, authentic and engaging exploration of scripture, how we might engage with it as leaders and building capability for leading scripture based staff formation for your school context.

    A key component is liaising with colleagues, sharing good practice and returning to school with the confidence, knowledge and resources to engage your staff community. Previous participants have reflected on the value of this collaboration and professional relationships for making Catholic Identity visible in their schools as well as developing their personal knowledge of theology and scripture. It is encouraged that you participate with colleagues from your school leadership team to maximise its impact on professional practice.

    Goal

    To meet the Corporate Plan 2020-2024 goals that Principals, Deputy Principals and Assistant Principals Religious identity and Mission exercise shared and effective religious leadership that enhances the catholic identity and Mission of the school (G16) and Leaders, staff and students regularly engage in  spiritual and religious formation. (G17)  

    To effectively strategise, embed and make visible regular staff engagement in Spiritual and Religious Formation in order to facilitate and promote Catholic identity that premises community engagement, partnerships and a culture of inclusion.

    Methodology

    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 5 days and participation at all five days is required.

    Description

    The Middle Years Problem Based Learning (PBL) and Incubator Network will provide an opportunity for educators to build their collective knowledge in designing PBL learning and assessment inquiries. Each workshop will be divided into two parts:

    • The first part will be professional learning, focusing on core concepts of PBL to deepen knowledge of best practice in designing transdisciplinary learning.
    • The second part will be the incubator, providing time for educators to craft their own PBL inquiry. Educators will bring a current PBL inquiry they wish to develop and choose the incubation station based on their design needs. Educations will work collectively at their incubation station to support each other to design a specific part of their PBL inquiry.

    Workshops will be held from 4 – 6 pm at the Catholic Education Office, Conference Centre Room 8.

      Network Description

      This network focuses on the development of models of effective school partnerships, with curriculum and pedagogical collaboration between CESA schools and schools in Asia.

      Schools need to jointly develop a Partnership Plan between schools, outlining the aspect of the curriculum to be explored in common between the 2 classes.

      Once the topic or concept is agreed to between teachers, it is time for students to develop what they want to show and discuss with their counterparts – via online collaborative classes which need to happen 2-3 times over one academic year. Students’ agency: they are the ones that develop the ideas and resources and facilitate the online class: read in Chinese and/or English, ask and answer questions, etc.

      What Actually Happens

      • Schools will deliberately work on the preparation of online classes and class presentations that favour student voice, student agency, distributed leadership and common areas of the curriculum
      • Student surveys will be constructed and distributed, in order to gather evidence of how students achieve some of the capabilities outlined in the CESA Living Learning Leading Framework, the General Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum as well as Global Competence, as outlined in the OECD 2018 PISA
      • Participants will use the Intercultural Understanding Learning Continuum to check their students’ progress throughout their involvement

      Focus on Intercultural Understanding and Global Competence

      Mobility around the world increases the need for intercultural understanding and the development of respectful relationships between people in different geographical settings.

      ICTs make these places easily accessible for social, cultural and economic partnerships. Our students will be involved in these partnerships in their futures. The Engage with Asia Network 2019 – 2021 will support our students develop the necessary capabilities to deal with and live in that world.

      The dates for our 2021 Engage with Asia Network are:

      Day 1 - Friday 28 May
      Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

          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 17th December 2021.  All information regarding the modules will be sent to registrants after the 15th of October.

          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
          • learning design principles for RE
          • the educational philosophy and theology which has shaped the redesign of Crossways
          • and also concept-based teaching, the features of high-quality teaching and learning in RE and how Visible Thinking strategies and routines can be applied to the RE classroom.

          You are warmly invited to join a series of 3 workshops on the topic “Exploring A Spirituality of Wisdom”. 

          These sessions will consist of gentle input and reflection. Together we will explore the meaning of Wisdom in the Christian tradition.  What is the ‘wisdom tradition’ and what spiritual practices nurture and deepen it? 

          These 3 workshops will provide an opportunity to reflect on how our work at the CEO connects with the broader religious dimension of Catholic Education and offer time and space for personal growth. 

          A key dimension of the Redesigned Crossways Religious Education Framework is the Wisdom strand. These workshops will offer the opportunity to get to know and explore some theological underpinnings of this strand. 

          Facilitator:  Julie Trinidad (Religious Education and Faith Formation Advisor/Catholic Studies Lecturer UNISA)

          System Accredited Module:  SAM status for CPF Level 3 Allowance is available with participation in all sessions and with further engagement with the material as negotiated with the facilitator.  (For CEO staff, this is applicable to Level F employees who are eligible to receive CPF Level 3.)  

            

          Key resources that will be explored: 

           “A Wisdom Way of Knowing” by Cynthia Bourgeault 

          “The Spiritual Exercises” of St Ignatius of Loyola 

          The sessions will be self-contained but will build on each other in the hope that participants can attend all 3 sessions. Participants can attend these sessions individually if that suits their calendar and other commitments. Please take the opportunity to speak with your line manager if you are interested in exploring this opportunity.

                  Teachers of EALD learners in the Middle and Secondary years

                  The LEAP Levels are used to assess the English language progress of EALD learners and to identify their English language learning goals.    

                  The LEAP Levels TargetedStrategies provide excellent ideas, but you may feel that you need to build your own knowledge a bit more in order to feel confident to teach, and model, cohesive devices such as sentence openers and passive voice.   
                  Therefore, in this workshop teachers will:  

                  • Consider the language choices and function of varied sentence openers 

                  • Learn about active and passive voice structures and purpose  

                  • Participate in modelled and guided strategies for teaching passive voice to learners of EALD  

                  Main references/resources will be the LEAP Levels 7-14 and LEAP Strategies. Please bring copies of these documents to the workshop.  

                  If you are in a country location, participation via Teams can be arranged by request; however for full engagement, attend in person is recommended.

                  Whilst most people can recall the stories of many biblical heroes - Noah, Abraham, Moses and David, to name a few - the stories of biblical women are less well-known. This workshop will focus on the lives and accomplishments of a range of extraordinary women, from the Old Testament, through the gospels, to women in the early Church. Their courage, tenacity and faith in the most challenging of circumstances will be explored and celebrated. Their stories are as relevant today as they were when they were first recalled and retold nearly 2000 years ago. Explicit links will be made to the Doctrinal and Content Elaborations in the Knowledge Strand of the redesigned Crossways.
