Professional Development

Supporting teachers in the classroom

We have partnered with Cool Australia to create a 2 hour accredited professional learning course to support the teaching of our Mobile Connections program. The Geographical Inquiry Made Simple course will develop your understanding of the geography inquiry process and how it applies to the development of technology rich and sustainability focused teaching and learning.

This online professional development course is on-demand, so you can learn anytime and anywhere. It is also accredited in each state and territory. In this course, you’ll learn how to plan a geographical inquiry unit. How to enrich your inquiry through the use of technology. How to incorporate sustainability into your inquiry. How to extend student learning through student-led action. How to engage students in real world geographical learning through the Mobile Connections resources.

In person

We have partnered with the Field of Mars Environmental Education Centre to offer NSW teachers a free face-to-face professional development course available at multiple locations across the greater Sydney area and regional NSW. The Geography Action course will unpack the Mobile Connections program and explore the use of technology and sustainability in the geographical inquiry process. This course will contribute 2 hours towards NESA registered professional development.
