On 19 February, 34 teachers from across Victoria and one who flew all the way from South Korea for the day attended the first session of the AFTV 2024 Nailing it! series.

The workshop was a great opportunity for teachers of the VCE course to get together, network and discuss their understanding of the course assessment requirements. During the workshop we examined how to design effective outcomes using examples, shared useful tips and advice on how to prepare students, design rubrics, give effective feedback and what to keep in mind when marking Unit 3 outcomes.

Compte rendu - AFTV Atelier Théâtre

Compte rendu - AFTV Atelier Théâtre

There is no other way to report on this event than by expressing immense gratitude. So, MILLE MERCIS Natacha Muller, director of The French Loop for guiding us during a whole day and showing us ways to create 'des occasions théâtrales' in our classes. An apt sub-title for l'Atelier théâtre would be FAIRE FEU DE TOUT BOIS, the name of one of the workshops proposed.
