This free online TPD provides an understanding of migratory and resident shorebirds and their wetland and coastal habitats for primary school teachers of Years 3 – 6.
The Australian Curriculum relevant content can be readily adapted for use in the classroom and serves as the perfect compliment to the Shorebirds Competition for primary schools. Teachers will hear from a panel of experts from BirdLife Australia, ANSTO Environmental Research, UNSW, and citizens who are protecting shorebirds in their local area.
Participants will also participate in a Q & A session and discuss how the content could be incorporated in lessons with other teachers and the ANSTO Education Team. The course is fully accessible online.
Completing this course before 31 July 2021 under NESA’s interim arrangements will contribute 5 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of delivery and assessment of NSW curriculum addressing standard descriptors 2.1.2, 2.2.2, 3.2.2 and 3.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
Teachers from other states and territories will receive a certificate of completion for their own PD portfolios.
