Dear Qld Marine Science Teachers,
If you haven't already received one, attached is the official invitation for the get-together/PDs scheduled for Week 6 across SEQld. Venues for Central Qld and North Qld in 2022 are still being organised. SEQld teachers will form the first Regional Working Groups in a process that involves creating a document that can be used by all teachers across Qld when marking IA2 and IA3s. More information about the PD to give to your HODs is attached. Please share around to any teachers you think might be interested.
Your work colleagues have worked really hard to secure these venues at their schools, many at late notice, and all free-of-charge. Please show your support.
MTAQ is providing funding for catering. So there will be food and drinks too.
If you can attend, that would be wonderful. Please register under the PD tab at www.marineeducation.com.au
Registrations become available as soon as the school/venue and time has been confirmed. Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast are now confirmed for Week 6 and hence ready for registrations.
Below is a link to an excel spreadsheet. It contains all the marking criteria for IA2 and IA3. It was made so anyone with the link (and a gmail account) can edit (saves automatically). Hopefully, by the end of all Regional Working Group meetings, the spreadsheet will be complete, and we will have a document that we can use to refer to and cross reference when marking IA2s and IA3s. All marine teachers are encouraged to start filling in the blanks on the document at anytime. The more we do beforehand as a collective, the better the document will be.
The link is as follows:
A draft timetable for the Regional Working Group Meetings is attached:
Registrations close 48 hours before each event.
