I have participated in learning to update knowledge and practice, targeted to professional needs and school and system priorities. As primarily a Physical Education and Health Education teacher a large amount of my professional learning has been associated with this learning area. Examples include Senior First Aid, Bronze Medallion, SDERA Keys For Life accreditation, The PE Geek workshop, Punch-fit Trainer course and many others. I have also engaged in professional learning with regards to school requirements and priorities including Accountable and Ethical Decision Making, Anaphylaxis Prevention and Management certificate, Copyright for Teachers, Record Keeping, Record Management, Hazardous Substances training and many others. Evidence of this professional learning can be found below.
