New eCourses for language teachers – Accredited PD

The Languages and Culture team has just published 2 new eCourses, 'Student motivation and engagement in languages' and 'High potential and gifted students in languages 7-10'. In the 'Student motivation and engagement' eCourse, you will:

  • - learn about motivation, engagement and achievement, and how they are interconnected

  • - identify and explore factors which influence achievement in the classroom

  • - plan effective learning sequences that generate and sustain motivation and lead to improved student achievement

  • - understand the impact of feedback on engagement and achievement.

The course is NESA Accredited PD (1.5 hours). We have also attached an infographic, which provides a summary of the key messages in the course.


In the 'High potential and gifted students in languages 7-10', you will learn about: - the High Potential and Gifted Education Policy and its underpinning principles - Gagné’s differentiated model of talent development - the characteristics of high potential and gifted students, across the 4 domains of potential - characteristics you may see in the languages context - the differentiation adjustment tool, and how it can be used to support high potential and gifted students.

You will also meet Ella, a real student in a NSW public school, and learn about her characteristics and learning needs, and then explore ways to support her in a languages context.

The course is NESA Accredited PD (1.5 hours). The Languages and Culture team have also attached an infographic, which provides a summary of some the learning behaviours you may see in the classroom, if a student has high potential or giftedness in languages.
