Enterprising Ideas

Teacher professional development workshop

Future Anything teacher professional development workshops unpack the ‘what’ and, more importantly, the ‘how’ of an innovative and future-focussed approach to teaching and learning.

Often ‘innovation’ is tied to elective subjects such as Business, STEM or extra-curricular or opt-in offerings. Instead, using our evidence based frameworks, we’ll work with your team to embed a practical and contextual cross-curriculum approach to building 21st Century Skills, Entrepreneurship and/or Project Based Learning that aligns with your school community’s needs and vision.

We know that release for teacher professional development is tricky at the best of times. We’ll work alongside your leadership team to coordinate a program delivery model that meets the needs (and complexities) of staff availability and timetabling.

Testimonials

Nicole is fantastic at provoking thought for educators to rethink how we can be better for empowering young people through education.

TeacherAustralian Trade Industry College, QLD

Nicole presented as a dynamic facilitator with an exceptionally strong knowledge of contemporary teaching and learning. I strongly valued the ideating process we engaged in that is easily transferrable into a secondary learning space. I gained practical ideas on how to help our secondary students to become more confident presenters, as I understand the importance of students developing their skills to speak in front of an audience. Nicole facilitated a full day of learning that was inspiring and of great value in assisting my work as a teacher of St Luke's Life Design program.
