Cosán Online Workshops

Adapting to Change, Reflecting for the Future

A series of 3 online workshops which will support teachers' professional learning, incorporating strategies and tools to enable collaborative reflection.

The ESCI (Education Support Centres Ireland) and the Teaching Council are co-hosting a series of three online workshops aimed at supporting schools in their professional learning during the COVID 19 pandemic. Under the banner Adapting to Change, Reflecting for the Future, the workshops will be facilitated by practising teachers and will provide opportunities for schools to learn from each other through reflective conversations that are underpinned by Cosán, the national framework for teachers’ learning. Facilitators will provide helpful tools and strategies to support teachers and school leaders in the development of flexible, autonomous and context-relevant professional learning experiences for all.

Schools are invited to nominate three staff members* (including one middle or senior leader) to engage in the workshops. Workshops will be hosted by the Education Centres listed below. Bookings can be made directly through Education Centres.
