Led by an experienced auditor, this workshop assists RTOs to establish a framework for identifying the evidence required and organising it for audit purposes. This webinar invites participants to examine what differentiates online delivery from face-to-face delivery. Through this process, we will also examine compliance requirements, how they apply to online delivery and assessment, and how you can incorporate compliance as part of robust course design. In this engaging webinar, participants will learn the characteristics of marking guides and effective rubrics, understanding about how to map a rubric to a competency, and gain the confidence to take rubrics online.
This interactive workshop enables participants to develop purposeful strategies to promote positive behaviours.

The emphasis is on understanding what prompts challenging behaviours and how to influence and promote long-lasting change. This webinar explores elements of a practice framework that promotes and sustains employer participation in assessment. We consider when workplaces are appropriate sites for assessment, assessors' responsibilities, constraints on employer participation, and strategies for workplace evidence gathering. During this workshop we untangle the links between units of competency, AQF levels and appropriate assessment designs. You will leave the session with actionable strategies that help you pitch assessment to the right AQF level.
In this interactive webinar, participants will learn more about human behaviours and how motivations can drive behaviour. They will also learn skills and strategies to promote positive behaviours.

This webinar invites you to consider options for frontloading quality assurance for assessment tools.
Drawing on quality expectations set down in the Standards for RTOs , we investigate the design and documentation requirements for best practice assessment tools. This webinar regards evidence with the attentive eyes of a regulator and auditor. What passes muster in their view? We round up details about your responsibilities for collecting, keeping and locating evidence. And rather than filing an empty plate, we consider practical alternatives for evidence you can't retain.

The classes provided a network of support as well as the opportunity to learn skills. Most of the university students assigned to the school were early childhood education majors who were required to take a course in working with parents. The parent coordinator became a prized guest lecturer and the parent resource center a favorite place for the students to visit.
A third area of change has been in the instructional program. Computers are available in each room and are used primarily for writing and research. Lastly, a portfolio assessment initiative has been adopted by the teachers as a way to augment the existing requirements for standardized tests. The portfolios are used to support the test scores or as evidence that problem areas have been addressed by the teachers and learned by the children.
Last year, a colleague took my place and is establishing his own way of operating in the building. My experiences have helped me to better understand the complexity of school change and have reinforced a personal belief that the needs of the people involved are as important as the vision for restructuring. After 72 months on the job, I left with nine personal realizations about the change process that can be grouped into three categories: Necessary Knowledge, Teacher Needs, and Research Priority.
Restructuring urban elementary schools is a process that works best when there are adequate resources to provide participants with the skills, knowledge, and understanding necessary to facilitate the change process in their own building. Change is a uniquely human activity that places extraordinary personal and professional expectations on teachers. It cannot follow a top-down approach, nor can it be planned in linear fashion where new accomplishments are expected as an everyday occurrence.
