Professional Learning 10-Week Programs



About this product

Partner with our expert team to implement 10-week self-paced full school professional learning programs

Challenging the way teachers view mathematics happens slowly over time (Muis, 2004). It is not some magical bean ingested in a one off PowerPoint presentation. Change is more likely to occur when teachers reflect on their practice, talk to other teachers about teaching, engage with experts in the field, and revisit their thinking over time (Hattie, 2009). If you are after something different, and want to break the mould of more traditional professional learning options, then these coaching opportunities are for you.

ORIGO Education is offering two 10-week professional learning programs, Language and Literacy in Mathematics and Problem Solving in the Classroom.

These programs are delivered online and include: 

  • Full school program
  • 10 week self-paced program
  • 4 key topics at 2 week intervals
  • Videos, tasks, content and support resources provided
  • Ongoing guidance from ORIGO Education (3 x one-on-one sessions)
  • Professional learning certificate on completion for all attendees
  • Access to Stepping Stones for the duration of the course (10 weeks)
  • Discount for schools who already use Stepping Stones to supplemental resources
