Experiential Learning Is Not Learning By Doing (90 Minutes)
Contemporary learning in the 21st Century demands that students develop their core competencies AND the 4 x Cs - Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking & Creativity skills. As a methodology, experiential learning is extremely effective at accomplishing these two goals. Yet, many teachers (and schools) believe that simply integrating activities or projects into their curriculum is the same thing - it’s NOT. In this interactive session, Mark will apply an experiential approach to help you distinguish what is and is not experiential learning, to help you develop critical success skills for your students. You will walk away with a bunch of new ideas which you can immediately introduce into your curriculum, and more importantly, a couple of strategies to sharpen your teaching skills.

Teaching Positive Education - Creating Explicit Wellbeing Curriculum
This workshop will allow delegates to explore the why, what and how of Positive Education Curriculum. It is ideal for delegates who are seeking to create, adapt or adopt Positive Education curriculum for their particular context.
Delegates will hear about the process involved in creating an explicit Positive Education curriculum, based on the 10-year journey of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School. They will explore a variety of elements that need to be considered when designing and implementing Positive Education curriculum, taking away key ideas and practical suggestions that will support the wellbeing of their students.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to analyse and deconstruct the process involved in creating explicit Positive Education lessons. They will be given a lesson analysis tool that can be used as part of a curriculum auditing process, as well as sample lesson plans from Geelong Grammar’s new explicit Positive Education Curriculum.
