Where are your face-to-face workshops held?

We hold our workshops wherever there is demand! Every term, we travel around to all capital cities, as well as other locations around Australia. Can’t see a Workshop close by? Email us to let us know where you’re based and we might just schedule one soon!

If our face-to-face locations aren’t convenient for you, we now hold online sessions of Workshop One and Workshop Two every term.

How do your online workshops work?

While a whole day of face-to-face learning can be inspiring and invigorating, we feel it’s simply too long to sit in front of a computer. So we’ve broken up our powerful face-to-face workshops into short, live online sessions on Zoom.

As teachers, you know how important it is for your students to be engaged. We feel the same thing about our workshops. So we’ve worked hard to craft our workshops into interactive, fun and effective training sessions.

All you need is a computer to sign into Zoom, plus a microphone and speakers – these are often built in, or you can use headphones that come with a mic. We’ll send you your handout as a PDF.

Note that we do not provide a recording of the session afterwards – we simply feel it’s too important to engage live in the session, so we insist you’re there. However, if for some reason you can’t make it, we’ll be sure to reschedule you for another session.
