  • Auslan LOTE K-6 training Seminar for teachers
    This is NOT a SIGNPLANET training seminar.
    We have been asked to run training seminars on the Auslan LOTE curriculum (Language Other Than English) for teachers.

    This session directly correlates to the Auslan LOTE Teaching Guides (the link will open in a new window)

    This training seminar guides teachers through the curriculum in a practical way, and provide them the practical experience, ideas and understanding that will support their teaching of the Auslan LOTE curricula for K (Kindergarten/Preschool) through to grade 6

    This is not an AUSLAN course. We do not teach Auslan within these seminars. We train participants on teaching techniques that will simplify and accelerate aquision of Auslan for their students. We teach techniques for the educator, and discuss the curricula on a whole. Providing the participant with a clear understanding of the aims and objectives, and the "flow" of the curriculum.

    We discuss the need for additional scafolding for new students and student with additional learning needs; and provide practical tips and training for teaching these students.

    A the conclusion of this training seminar teachers will be able to confidently and capably embark on a successful Primary School Auslan LOTE curriculum

    Session length : 3 hours

    Cost : $100 per head

    These seminars are usually held in the mornings, before afternoon sessions of the SignPlanet traing, so that participants can attend both.
