    1. About G-TEN Semester 2, 2012 G-TEN, the Grampians Region Teacher Education Network, is a membership organisation offering a wide range of high quality professional learning designed to meet the needs of its members. What’s new for G-TEN in 2012? We have a number of new categories: Leadership Development – this year Leadership Development professional learning opportunities are  being offered through  G-TEN, and can be viewed in a NEW Leadership Development category. Many of the programs will be decided by a working party of current school teachers and leaders who meet regularly. This group formerly developed and promoted programs for the Assistant Principals and Aspiring Leaders’ group. Graduate and Returning Teachers - A range of programs specifically designed for graduate and returning teachers can be viewed through the category on the left of the screen. Personal Development – This category will include all sessions to do with your development – eg: First Aid, G-TEN Design Space on Ultranet: This year all resources for professional learning programs will be accessed by DEECD employees though our new Design Space on the Ultranet. (Search for number 52280047). Have a browse around the site for information and G-TEN news. In designing the suite of programs offered, ideas are gained from G-TEN participant responses and also from input from other key stakeholders across the Grampians Region to ensure identified professional learning needs and regional priorities are addressed.

    16. Powerful Learning: Module A - Working as a School Improvement Team • Outline The Powerful Learning modules can be either offered to the team responsible for leading Powerful Learning or for the Whole Staff at your school as either an afterschool session or part of a school Professional Learning day. All six modules can be delivered or a school may opt for a focus on certain components. • Each of the modules identifies area of the work presented by David Hopkins and examines the research and theory behind it and explores how they can be used in practice. Most of the modules are designed as 2 hour sessions but can be tailored to suit school needs or run as a two part session. • Module A - Working as a School Improvement Team. • The way Powerful Learning is led within a school can exert strong influence on the eventual outcome. The workshop is designed as a reflective process to consider important principles and protocols of operation including establishing norms, goal setting, professional learning, and face to face accountability. • Presenters Paul Baker - Network Improvement Officer working in Grampians Region • Audience Secondary Teachers, School Improvement Team members (can be modified for primary school settings on request). • Location/When Dates can be arranged for presentation in YOUR school by contacting Paul Baker on Ph5337 8485 or email baker.paul.j@edumail.vic.gov.au. To assist in planning we ask that this be done as soon as possible or by end of July at the latest. • Costs Nil program costs to ‘G-TEN’ member schools • Non-member schools - $500 per module per school

    17. Powerful Learning: Module B - Framing the task as a challenging inquiry or problem • Outline The Powerful Learning modules can be either offered to the team responsible for leading Powerful Learning or for the Whole Staff at your school as either an afterschool session or part of a school Professional Learning day.
