Six sessions – 9.5 hours of direct tuition spread over 2 full PD days.
I have developed a combined live/pre-recorded workshop format which has proved to be successful. Each of the six sessions will begin with me live and then will move to a pre-recorded session. While the recording is playing I will be available on chat to answer written questions. I will be back live at the end of each session to recap and answer questions.
This course is designed to be accessed by individual schools interested in having all or a large proportion of their staff on the workshop, working together and building an across-school program that will benefit all students.
There is a minimum number of participants of 25 but within one school there is no maximum number of teachers who can attend. The more the better because the best way to get an ATL program working at your school is to involve your whole school in its design.
For all participants I will supply
a 25 page workbook for the full course
links to all the ATL skills in Excel file frameworks for working on during the workshop
one month’s full free access for all participants to my lalatat.com platform of MYP & DP ATL skills exercises

FREE AFTER SCHOOL SEMINAR FOR TEACHERS
Applying the skills of effective learning for success at school.
After each student learning course one of our presenters will be available to run a one hour after-school seminar for teaching staff for no charge. This seminar introduces the idea of using the classroom experience to develop within each student, the skills of the self-regulated learner. Helping teachers learn how to shift from a transmission teaching style to a more facilitative one by utilising excellent digital resources in every subject area. How to focus on the skills of learning being employed by the students and improving those while enabling students to gain the content knowledge they need through inquiry learning.
There is no limit on numbers for this seminar.
TEACHING WITH 21ST C (ATL) SKILLS IN MIND
One of the difficulties in designing standard courses to help all schools to move ahead down the 21st C or ATL skills teaching path is that every school is at a different point in their development and has different needs. In recognition of these differences the workshop programme you will see below has been divided up into nine specific topics each with a descriptor and a time frame for delivery.
Each topic can stand alone as a short workshop or can be built together into a maximum of three full days of workshop delivery. Schools are encouraged to build their own programme out of the topics listed below and to consult thoroughly with Lance before delivery to make sure that their programme meets their specific needs.
All topics will be delivered in a workshop style and are all designed to give schools clear practical strategies for design, mapping, vertical and horizontal articulation, implementation, administration, assessment and teaching of 21st C ( ATL) skills.
All teachers should attend this course for themselves and to help their students. This comment applies equally to parents.
