2021 Kath Murdoch Series RSVP
We are excited to be welcoming Kath Murdoch back to our online NOIIE Zoom stage as last years workshop was a sold out success! This year we will be offering a three part series with Kath, in which she will be introducing us to many of the ideas included in her forthcoming book due to come out before the end of 2021. The focus of this new book is on personal inquiry: how to work with children’s personal passions, interests and questions. While Kath’s focus is primarily on K-8, we know that her ideas cross all grades and ages.

What will this 3-part learning series include?
In this three part professional learning series, Kath Murdoch will work with participants to explore ways in which we can offer young learners the opportunity to inquire into the questions, interests, issues and passions that are important to them. In conjunction with shared inquiry journey, opportunities to explore personal passions are highly engaging and allow learners to build their capacity as independent, thoughtful, reflective contributors to their communities. Over the three sessions, Kath will share strategies and structures for supporting and guiding personal inquiries, various contexts in which personal inquiry can be developed and the role of the educator in the process, Drawing on her extensive experience working with teachers and children around the world, Kath will share many practical examples. Importantly, participants will be invited to reflect on the way they can include opportunities for personal inquiry in their own lives.
