Personalised Learning Workshop

Learn how to create and organise personalised learning pathways for students, using either your Learning Management System or a third party website such as Weebly. You can bring together digitalised explanations, learning challenges and collaboration tools in what becomes a transparent program that is visible to teachers, students, and parents alike.

If you've ever wondered what the teacher as 'guide on the side, not sage on the stage' looks like in practice, this workshop is for you.

Participants can either use their own school portal system, or instead consult our special training materials for a free Weebly website. Participants should bring a laptop to the workshop.


Workshops are held on-site in the SCIL Building at Northern Beaches Christian School:
1 Echunga Road, Terrey Hills NSW

Workshops run from 10am–4pm.
Lunch and snacks provided. 


Day 1 only: $1950   (per group)

Day 1 + Day 2: $3450   (per group) 

Prices include GST

Day 1

In Day 1, participants observe personalised learning in action at Northern Beaches Christian School, debrief with students regarding their experiences and the impact of our techniques, explore key concepts and components and get hands-on practise with some of the action steps necessary to develop their own units. 

Participant outcomes:

  • observe personalised learning techniques in action
  • identify the shifting role of the teacher
  • consider the practical steps involved in personalising a unit of work, including the creation of resources, the design of online spaces such as Weebly (but equally, of physical tools), and techniques such as image mapping to tie the unit together
  • practise the capturing and automating of a range of learning resources and sequences

Day 2

In Day 2, teachers have a chance to develop their own personalised learning unit with expert assistance. They leave with a prototype to implement with their own students. They also have a chance to explore and implement advanced elements, such as ‘gamification’ and game-based learning, if and when they are ready. 

Participant outcomes:  

  • create a prototype short personalised unit of work, or the overview and key elements of a longer unit.
  • create a visual image or table that maps out structured choices for students
  • devise a tracking system to maintain structure and cohesion within the range of student choices
  • consider the value and impact of adding gamified elements to their unit.
