Educationally Sound features discussions with interesting and prominent people in the field of education in Australia.
The Latrobe Valley CRT Network has developed a community-based, contextually relevant model of professional development which empowers local Casual Relief Teachers to create their own professional devleopment experiences. In this episode we talk to Ian Conabere and Karen Mackay, lead volunteers in the network, about how they sustain the network’s practice in regional Australia and what effects it has had for the local teaching community. It’s a story of local empowerment and overcoming the tyranny of distance that is the Aussie countryside. Host: Amy Cotton, Teacher Learning Network.
