About the Workshop

Our professional development workshop will allow teachers to reflect on their current teaching practice, with an opportunity to add value and update their learning strategies. Teachers will complete the workshop having: 

  • Engaged with contemporary research on creative in-class room learning, working with hard-to-engage students and discussed current literary trends.
  • Rigorously addressed any student learning difficulties within their faculty and peer-develop sensitive responses to improve student-learning outcomes.
  • Maintain their professional competence through our BOSTES endorsed workshop (for NSW). 

All teachers will receive a Certificate of Participation at the conclusion of the workshop. For NSW teachers, completing The Red Room Company's Professional Development Program contributes 1 hour of QTC Registered PD addressing 2.1.2 and 2.5.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
