VCE Sociology Units 3&4 teacher Professional Learning day
Date: Wednesday 4 December, 2013
Venue: Melbourne Museum, Immigration Museum
An exciting professional development day for all VCE Sociology Unit 3&4 teachers is to be held on Wednesday, 4 December 2013. Organised by SEV, Melbourne Museum and the Immigration Museum, this engaging and dynamic teacher-learning day will feature structured visits to BOTH institutions.
The morning session at Melbourne Museum will explore the wonderful new exhibition ‘First Peoples’, while the afternoon session at the Immigration Museum will access the marvellous ‘Identity: yours, mine, ours” exhibition. Both museum sessions will feature a teacher workshop, tour and associated resources to help you with your Sociology teaching. This day is aimed to align with the key topics in Unit 3 Sociology: Australian Indigenous Culture and Ethnicity. It will be a wonderful way to build your understanding, network with your colleagues and help you plan your own excursions to these exhibitions with your students.
Come along and set up the first half of your 2014 course with SEV!
