Our Associate Member, NWEA, is launching a range of online professional learning options that suit educators new to MAP through to those very familiar with it and who seek advanced learning. NWEA will work with a school in advance of the online course to customise the focus and content to meet the exact needs and ensure the time is spent effectively. The online courses will be led by one of the NWEA expert facilitators who works in a school using MAP and who is very familiar with maximising its potential in teaching and learning. NWEA is offering AISA members a 20% discount on the standard prices of their online professional learning. The options include:
Each coaching session can be customised, with the objectives established during the 30 minute planning call with the facilitator. The regular virtual sessions are 90-minutes long which is sufficient to explore ideas and practice in detail. Regarding the size of a school’s audience, it’s best limit the ‘discussion group’ to no more than 6 staff members asking questions during the session. They can have more people in the room if needed, and their discussion group can relay their questions to the trainer. The AISA member discount brings the price of these sessions down from US$500 to $400.
An in-depth professional learning option for MAP is the Virtual Applying Reports course. It’s broken up into three 2-hour sessions, ideally with a maximum group of 12 active participants. Scheduling is more or less open-ended and would be a function of each school’s schedule. The AISA member discount bring the cost of this option down from US$1,500 to $1,200.
