This in-person workshop will give you an introduction to the Creative Body-Based Learning’s (CBL) and how to incorporate whole-body learning experiences into your classroom.

When children actively participate in creative, whole-body learning experiences, their classroom engagement, academic performance, and overall attitude improves, leading to enhanced learning outcomes and heightened student engagement (Garrett & MacGill, 2019).

Drawing on inspiration from a Drama-based Pedagogy (Dawson, 2018) you will be equipped with an array of highly effective teaching strategies and tools to implement CBL experiences into your classroom.

Bookings are essential and close Sunday 5th November.

A certificate of professional learning will be provided. This professional learning workshop will support you in demonstrating the following AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teacher: 1.2, 2.1, 3.3, 4.1. 6.2, 6.3, 7.4.
