Reef Guardian School teacher professional development opportunity

Reef Guardian School teacher professional development opportunity

To celebrate 20 years of the Reef Guardian Schools program in 2023, the Reef Authority in collaboration with THINK Learning Studio, will be delivering a professional development opportunity for Reef Guardian School teachers.

The Great Barrier Reef Place-Based Learning Discovery Workshop (Discovery Workshop) aims to develop teachers’ capacity and knowledge to deliver interdisciplinary project-based and place-based learning. It is an immersive experience, combining hands-on activities in one of the most inspiring locations in the world, the Great Barrier Reef. The Discovery Workshop is also an opportunity for teachers from across Queensland to network with each other and the Reef Authority’s education team, with the aim of creating a network of Reef Guardian School Champions.
