A pedagogy focus

The scope and importance of pedagogy cannot be under-estimated. How we utilise everything at our disposal when designing and delivering programs/ units of inquiry/ short bites/explicit teaching to maximise student learning sits at the heart of strategic and effective classroom and school-wide practice.  Consider, for a moment, everything you juggle on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis: assessing the needs of your students, cultivating your classroom culture, planning strategies, managing resources, solving problems, orchestrating your entire planning/teaching/learning programs, and by no means least – planning for your own professional growth and development!

Transformational teachers cultivate a curiosity that leads to scholarly work, indeed to lifelong patterns of learning. They also are relentless in finding a variety of ways for their students to learn, not being satisfied until their pedagogy connects with students.

It is these very factors that influence the framework for enodatio’s professional development eLearning modules. Currently we have more than 30 stand-alone, pedagogically-focused  Modules, or “Learning Spaces” as we like to call them, designed and written to exacting criteria, modelling best practice, and addressing future-related issues. Pedagogical coaching is an inherent part of some Module Learning Spaces, and is offered as a supplementary option with others. It can also be arranged for in its own right according to individual needs.


Each online Learning Space, the equivalent of approximately 6 hours of contact time, is aligned with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Certification for Professional Learning Plans purposes, registration and/or standards requirements, is provided on completion. Learning Spaces can be engaged with individually, in small groups, or large groups. Visit About the Modules to see Learning Space sequence samples.
