So this week sees the first get together of a Canterbury Professional Learning Group for MLE and collaborative teaching environments. A few of us at Clearview Primary were inspired by the Auckland PLG and decided to set up our own! The response was overwhelming and we had to cut off registrations at around 100 people. Shows the demand there is for professional development in this area. We are going to kick off the first meeting with sharing our Clearview journey, having some time for discussion, planning for future PLG events and a tour of our awesome school.
We really want it to be about teachers talking with teachers - sharing ideas, challenges and opportunities! If you missed out this time, keep an eye on the PLG blog for future events. Looking forward to seeing lots of people on Thursday!
