We are very pleased to invite you to a livestream presentation at 10am on Wednesday 26 August 2020 introducing the new priorities for regionally-allocated professional learning and development (PLD). 

Please use this link when you join the presentation: https://ministryofeducation.wildapricot.org/Introducing-the-PLD-Priorities-Livestream/ by copying it into your Chrome browser.  Please note, if you use another browser, you may be asked to update it.

The speakers include Iona Holsted, Pauline Cleaver and Kiritina Johnstone from the Ministry of Education Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga, Dr. Margie Hohepa and Dr. Mere Berryman, Professor at the University of Waikato and Director of Poutama Pounamu.

The online presentation will cover how the new PLD priorities support the sector and the Ministry’s strategic goals, the priorities themselves and their intent, and the shifts involved for PLD providers and sector in delivering on this intent.

The priorities come into effect with a combined Terms 3 and 4 2020 PLD allocation round. They re-focus PLD towards progress across the curriculum and the critical teacher capabilities and learning that will help promote equitable learning opportunities and build inclusive practices.

PLD providers and facilitators play a key role in helping realise the intent of the new priorities.

A recording of the presentation will also be available on the PLD website shortly after the livestream event. 

 

Webinar events on the new priorities

We are pleased to share with you that there is a series of webinars on the new PLD Priorities beginning on 27 August. The webinars will begin at 3.30pm and will run for 90 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays over a period of about eight weeks.

The webinars, which will be delivered by a mixture of internal and external experts, are intended to socialise the new PLD priorities, build shared understandings of them and the shifts in facilitator and teacher practice that they will lead to, and how they will impact for learners. The programme for the first six is confirmed.
