Module Overview
Module One: Mutual trust and respect Create an environment of mutual trust and respect where students feel they belong. Teachers are key role models who can influence the attitudes and values of their students. Students need to be given opportunities to expand their knowledge and understanding of different cultures and identities in a manner appropriate to the subject being taught.
Module Two: Inclusive practices This module focuses on ways in which teachers can create classrooms where all students, regardless of their backgrounds and identities are given opportunities to collaborate and interact in a collegial way. Expert teachers discuss the importance of avoiding sexism, racism, and homophobic language and how to handle tensions if they arise.
Module Three: Celebrating diversity and challenging stereotypes This module focuses on creating opportunities so all students can reach their potential. Expert teachers share how they have ensured no student is disadvantaged by teaching practices and curricula.

Course Structure

This course uses a ‘scenario-based learning’ approach to enable you to reflect on realistic school-based scenarios, consider how you might respond, and receive real-time, tailored feedback from experienced teachers. It is designed to support your continued professional learning by facilitating your engagement with a range of situations you may encounter in your own classroom in a virtual environment.

Get started

Once enrolled, participants will be sent an activation email. This will allow them to create a TSP account and access the course through the dashboard.

Scenarios

Each module includes five scenarios where beginning teachers will view the scenario, rate the appropriateness of three possible responses and write a brief rationale for each. Next, they find out how experienced teachers rated each response and most importantly why.

Feedback reports

Feedback reports at the end of each module show new teachers their overall alignment with experienced teachers and include resources, readings and strategies for practice.

Evidencing

Once participants complete the course, they will be able to download a comprehensive report as well as a certificate of completion.

Track progress

Organisations can login to track participant progress, identify individuals in need of additional support and evaluate the effectiveness of the course by viewing individual and collective data.
