  • Make links with familiar DET frameworks and resources including the HITS and other useful practices to support student learning; and
  • Reflect on current practice and determine next steps for teaching and learning for students of refugee backgrounds.

This workshop is aligned to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

  • Teachers, Tutors, and Education Support workers.
