Active Approaches to Teaching and Learning of Literacy ( Live Webinar - Carrick-on-Shannon) - Course Ref: 21SU06

This Summer School will take participants on a journey through the Primary Language Curriculum and how we can develop its three strands throughout the Primary School. It promises to be a highly engaging and interactive Summer School with each student making a journal of their journey as they delve into the world of Oral Language, Reading and Writing. There will be an emphasis on children’s literature, active approaches to learning in Literacy. The five-day course will be broken up into short manageable chunks of learning with opportunities for reflection and discussion. Participants can be assured of a very welcoming and non-threatening approach to language learning together.

Catherine Gilliland is an experienced teacher, Literacy trainer and storyteller. Her work is described as inspirational, and she represented Ireland at the World Literacy Summit. She is widely published and has spoken at many conferences in Ireland and across Europe. Her webinars over the past year have been very well received by teachers across many education centres.

This Course will be delivered from Monday 16th August to Friday 20th August (inclusive) from 9.30am to 2pm daily, with a break from 11.30am -12 noon.

Guidelines for participation in Zoom Summer Courses:

Our zoom summer course will be in the form of a Zoom meeting. Tutors will endeavour to ensure that they will be facilitated as close to the face-to-face method of delivery as originally intended. There will be regular discussions and group activities throughout the day. The Tutors will be making use of break-out rooms etc.

The Tutors will be marking the official Department Roll each day, on your behalf, in both the morning and the afternoon. In addition to this, an attendee list will be printed off from our Zoom account. This details the time of each time you log in and out of the Zoom meeting. This is required by the Department in addition to the official Roll book.

Participants must be online for the whole duration of the course. They must have their camera on at all times and have their name displayed. It must be the name they used when registering for the course/zoom*. Participants must engage fully with the tutor and other participants.

Participants are not permitted to record the zoom sessions.

There is a strict limit of 25 participants on each course. The link must not be shared with other people.

N.B. It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure that they have adequate broadband and IT to access the course. Full attendance is required to be awarded 3 EPV days. 2 EPV days will be awarded for 4 days attendance. (Regardless of the reason for the absence, including poor broadband connection). No EPV days will be awarded for less than 4 days attendance.

The course fee cannot be refunded for any reason.

*NB: The host of the meeting will only admit those whose name matches the name on the roll/register. You can change the name that is displayed on Zoom by right clicking on the name and choosing the rename option
