Kilkenny Education Centre Spring Courses Programme 2022
Kilkenny Education Centre's Primary, Post Primary and ICT Spring Courses Programme 2022 is live on our website, under the 'CPD' tab.
Online CPD workshops that cultivate curiosity! The Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) programme and the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO Ireland), in partnership with Kilkenny Education Centre, are providing a Series of online CPD workshops for Primary teachers wishing to build their confidence in teaching STEM subjects. There are three workshops in the Series in total;
The Centre is delighted to collaborate with the Kilkenny County Council Arts Office on this project supported by Creative Ireland. This course, open to Primary and Post Primary teachers and support staff, will take place over four consecutive Tuesdays in May 2022. Registration will open later this month. On this course, teachers and support staff will learn the craft of knitting and/or crochet. There will be a focus on participants mastering the craft of knitting/crochet themselves and developing an adequate level of competence through practice. Each session will provide ideas and demonstrations on how to build students manual dexterity through craft-based activities and ideas to support the Fabric and Fibre strand of the Visual Art curriculum.
Kilkenny Education Centre, in collaboration with Co. Wexford Education Centre, Drumcondra Education Centre and Waterford Teachers’ Centre, will deliver this webinar on Monday 23rd May 2022 at 7p.m. This webinar will be an introduction to developing a neurodiversity-affirming approach to social skills. It will introduce participants to the emerging idea that children with Autism do not actually have deficits in social skills by looking at current research. Together, participants will explore what this means for traditional “social skills” training and the impact this sort of training has on children with Autism.
