Teachers from Kingston State School.
Teacher Professional Development (TPD) consists of four two-hour-sessions.
The TPD sessions are the first step for participating teachers in the program. The sessions aim to build teacher confidence in using the teaching and learning strategy of inquiry while building their capacity in Indigenous science contexts/ways of knowing and doing.
I2S2 Coordinators are available via email and phone to assist with teacher planning prior to delivering the inquiry. Coordinators also conduct class visits to ensure teachers and staff are well supported throughout the delivery of the program.
