PD in the Pub

Free for IEU and AEU student and teacher members in their first few years of teaching.

This is a chance to participate in a professional development session with some of the most dynamic presenters currently working with Victorian teachers — and if you are an AEU or IEU member it will cost you nothing. These sessions offer valuable and practical personal development from a top class practitioner in a convivial surrounding.

Not only do you get free PD, you can have a drink at the bar on us and we will issue you with a certificate of participation in the event for VIT registration purposes.

ALL sessions run from 4.30pm–6.00pm and are FREE for IEU and AEU members. Please note that this a members-only programme.

This practical, hands on workshop will give you the opportunity to meet other teachers, share strategies and feel encouraged with new ideas to take away! This will include how to engage your learners, build a tribe for learning and promote effective communication and collaboration in the classroom. It’s fun (even if it’s hard work ) when you learn!
