Family Engagement and Teacher Practice

This webinar gives details of a teacher in-service program that was run in a cluster of schools in Greater Dandenong (Melbourne). Family Engagement Leader Sue Brown says that conventional teacher training does little to prepare teachers for family partnerships, so the cluster of schools decided to run an in-service program for teachers. The program built on the work of Dr Debbie Pushor from the University of Saskatchewan. Sue explains the principles behind the training course, and why it was successful and well-received by the staff who participated.
