The online coaching modules develop effective pedagogical practice and strengthen teacher content knowledge in priority areas from Prep to Year 10.
How to teach reading, How to teach writing, How to teach mathematics, How to teach science and How to assess learning and use evidence to differentiate have been piloted and reviewed, and are now available at no cost to all Queensland teachers in state and non-state schools, as well as pre-service teachers attending Queensland universities.
While the modules are designed for early career teachers, experienced teachers may also benefit from completing a chosen module or engaging in selected content to develop specific knowledge and skills in targeted professional learning areas.
Each module comprises six episodes for completion with the support of a coach. They are optional and self-paced. It is estimated to take about 20-24 hours to complete each module.
The Department of Education and Training, in conjunction with the Queensland College of Teachers , developed the modules to align with the Australian Curriculum and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST). The modules are reviewed by a broad cross-section of Queensland educators before release.
Full or partial completion of a module should be verified by a school principal and, if recorded with the Queensland College of Teachers, may be recognised as Continuing Professional Development . Teachers may also use completed tasks as evidence against the APST. The modules have also been designed to support strategic initiatives for whole school improvement in Queensland state schools, including the Great Results Guarantee, Mentoring Beginning Teachers program and Master Teacher initiative.
