Last week Northern Beaches Secondary College held their annual all-staff professional development day, bringing together staff from the different campuses that make up the college. Deftly organised and managed by Renata Grudic (Head Teacher, Teaching and Learning) the day was an amazing collection of TeachMeet-style short presentations, hands on workshops and a world cafe to share learnings.
As part of the TeachMeet, I shared three simple ways we can all improve our creativity (view the presentation here). We then ran a 2.5 hour workshop on Collaborative Creativity (based on our recently approved PD course). The group was enthusiastic, developing some wild and crazy ideas… and hopefully leaving with some great practical creativity skills for their classrooms in the coming weeks.
