The Heartbeat of the Teacher - Professional Development Day 1

Your Invitation to the first of our Free Professional Development Days 2014
Friday 2 May – The Heartbeat of the Teacher

What makes the teacher tick? What keeps the teacher going? What connects the teacher with their students? All these questions and more will be answered on this special day. We have a great lineup of presenters but come prepared for action as well as there will be heart workshops to complement our speakers.

This day is designed for serving school teachers, tertiary teacher trainers and pre-service teachers to meet, network and grow together in our craft of Christian education.

This is an opportunity for us all to reflect on the art of teaching and to receive encouragement and inspiration while having the chance to build into the service of others.

The day will be fully catered, starts at 9.00 am and concludes 3.00 pm.
