Meeting Five - 31. 10. 2019
It was great to see everyone again at our last self-efficacy PLC session for 2019. We reflected on our learning journey and celebrated our successes (personal which linked to the targeted students' success). We look forward to sharing our learning journey hear the ideas from other PLC groups, in week 5.
Meeting Four - 12. 09. 2019
We had another helpful sharing session with a lot of thought provoking questions to guide discussions. We linked influences and strategies around self-efficacy to DATs (deliberate acts of teaching). We are making a conscious effort and becoming more aware of how to support target students in experiencing success through a focus on developing self-efficacy.
Meeting Three - 08.08.2019
A great learning session with colleagues and peers where we shared ideas on deliberate acts of teaching (DATs) in classes which was documented and trialed on our measuring tool template.
Meeting Two - 27. 06. 2019
A great korero to end the term, with our self-efficacy professional learning group. Today we defined self-efficacy for ourselves with links to relevant literature. We briefly discussed examples of high and low self-efficacy in students and how this links to growth-mindset and the Learning Pit.
We are looking forward to our next networking session to gain new perspectives, and make a difference for our learners. We will be supporting each other through sharing our current practices and deliberate acts of teaching (DAT) that develop self-efficacy, in target students. These ideas will be related to our key reading and we hope to discuss and gain new ideas about the challenges we face in our Kahui Ako.
Meeting One - 30. 05. 2019
Thank you for your contributions at our MKA's first meeting on self-efficacy. We look forward to working alongside you in our professional learning community (PLC) and sharing your expertise in this area throughout the year.
