Teacher Professional Development Workshops

  • Everyday objects from extraordinary times with Louise Moriarty (Thursday 13 October 4:30-6:30pm) FREE – Booking essential (limited places)

    When we engage with an object that has a connection to a time that we have strong viewpoints or fixed beliefs about, we are transported to a new way of seeing. What do we know about these things that existed at the time of the First World War? The perspective from which we learn and imagine the events or people who these objects represent, is greatly altered when we use all of our senses to explore. To stand in the shoes of another becomes possible when we recognise the possibilities that these objects give us to imagine. To access empathy and deep understanding for a place in time that we have not encountered is possible through the objects that were handled there. This way of engaging with history can turn the un-engagable into an inquiring mind. In this workshop, both orthodox and unorthodox object interpretation methods will be used as a starting point for exploring State Library of Queensland’s First World War collection items.

These upcoming professional development workshops are part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation program, proudly supported by the Queensland Government.

Participants will be given professional development certificates aligned with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
