Have your say in TER Teachmeet: What we’ve learnt so far

TERTM Learnt so far

In the first half of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has seen schools, teachers and students pivot rapidly to curriculum delivered through remote learning strategies, and then almost just as quickly return to normal school operations, but without normal student attendance or curriculum requirements.

While this has undoubtedly been a stressful time for all involved, it has also been a time in which necessaity has driven invention and new learning, the benefits of which we seek to reflect on, record and share with the TER audience as part of this upcomming episode.

TER Teachmeet: What We’ve Learnt So Far invites school educators to share their reflections on something they’ve learnt from recent experiences that has, or will, inform ongoing positive change in their teaching practice.

Please share your experiences with the TER audience as part of this special event!

Whether you’ve explored a new technology, developed new approaches to learing design, gained a new appreciation for students’ perspectives and challenges, or otherwise found some positive change to your teaching practice to come from the past few months, then we want to hear from you!
