AT-photo-WebDifferentiation is the ‘holy grail’ of teaching. This seminar tackles the issue head on. Participants will be introduced to a model for differentiated practice that they can use in their teaching contexts along with practical examples. This is an interactive, hands-on seminar in which participants will experience a range of worthwhile learning activities and teaching activities that demonstrate how to cater for the needs of all learners. The seminar will conclude with the exploration of a Japanese unit of work designed with a specific focus on differentiation.

As Director of Bayside Teaching and Learning Consultancy, she works consulting with teachers and schools, helping them to improve their programs and the learning outcomes for students.
