Online coaching modules are helping to strengthen pedagogical practice and teacher content knowledge at Middlemount Community School.

The How To Teach Reading pilot program with the school's primary and secondary teachers is having a positive impact on improving teacher confidence in teaching reading.

The online module provides a valuable resource for teacher development, particularly in rural and remote locations and is important in supporting graduate teachers to develop their knowledge and skills. Other coaching modules available include how to teach writing, maths and science.
