Session Overviews

Assessment in Secondary health education and engaging strategies

With Donna Barwood
This course is suitable for those teaching Years 7-12.

Looking at Assessment with Secondary HE, this session will focus on building and/or redeveloping health education assessment tasks in a secondary setting to extend learning as opposed to repeating or recalling knowledge facts.  Using a pre-developed task teachers are shown how a strengths-based approach and a critical inquiry focus can be embedded in valuable and meaningful tasks to inform learning. This session would be of interest to beginning and experienced teachers.

For Engagement Strategies, this session will provide opportunities to grow your practice. You’ll walk away from this fun, puzzle and secondary-based session with lots of new ideas for your teaching that take a strengths-based approach to health education. By using old school games, explore your student strengths, reveal their invisible knowledge and support children to critically engage and deal with the health challenges that they face now and in the future.
