August Newsletter – A Matter of Translation Zoom TeachMeet (2nd September) program, Keynote Spotlights and Research Partner Schools Memorandum of Understanding
August has seen incredible activity. The upcoming A Matter of Translation free Zoom TeachMeet will bring together more than 140 teachers from throughout Queensland and further afield. We have two exceptional Keynote presenters, along with several classroom-focused workshops. In addition, the A Learner’s Toolkit teacher community has continued to grow, with 46 newsletter registrations received in August alone. Finally, we have distributed the A Learner’s Toolkit Partner Schools Memorandum to 40 educational institutions worldwide.
We look forward to creating an open-access and collegial research community built on engagement, translation and contribution that can overcome the barriers of school type, context and geography.
A Learner’s Toolkit is the first open-access program in Australia – and one of only a few in the world – that helps secondary students become more efficient in learning and studying to achieve success throughout their secondary schooling and beyond.
Developed by the Churchie Research Centre (CRC) in partnership with three leading universities, A Learner’s Toolkit applies the best science of learning to help secondary schools and their students master study at a pivotal time in their lives.
In the spirit of reconciliation, the A Learner’s Toolkit team acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
