CONNECT Inspiring Communities

CONNECT enables small groups of people who share a passion for CLD to come together online across Aotearoa – in an intentionally-structured learning and reflection space tailored for sharing the questions, successes, challenges and opportunities we are all facing.

CONNECT offers online group learning so you can:

  • Be inspired and energised by others working in CLD in New Zealand
  • Bounce off one another’s ideas as you explore the challenges and opportunities of your CLD work
  • Have a safe space to reflect on your practice and share your stories
  • Build on the skills and knowledge shared at our workshops and continue your own personal pathway in CLD
CONNECT Inspiring Communities

A Community of Practice is a real ako space for teachers and learners together

Knowing that we are not alone in this kaupapa. I work quite remotely and it was great to have an opportunity to link and learn from others… and to share what I have learned as well.

The fact that you are sharing your challenges and successes helps you put things in perspective. There is a group of ideas that exists outside your own community and this has become a real encouragement for me.


WHAT DOES IT COST?
