Stile Professional Learning
Level up your science teaching
Stile Professional Learning — PL for short — is about great science teaching. It’s all about creating vibrant, supportive, collaborative classrooms where debate can flourish.
Stile’s high quality, practical PL workshops are purpose-built for busy science teachers. They explore a range of evidence-based pedagogies that we’ve observed working in thousands of science classrooms across Australia.
We focus on turning the theory into practice with Stile.
Why Stile PL?
Stile’s PL is focused on the practical application of evidence-based pedagogies — those that are demonstrated to have real impact — in the science classroom. These high impact teaching strategies have a strong, sustained track record of helping to improve student outcomes.
Aligned to AITSL standards
All Stile PL has been purpose-built to align to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. All full-day workshop attendees are issued with a certificate that can be used as evidence of professional learning
Get even more out of Stile
We model how to apply pedagogies with Stile itself. This gives us the opportunity to model the use of Stile’s tools in a classroom-like environment, while also sharing our favourite tips and tricks.
A lasting impact
Teachers plan and set goals for how they’ll put their new learning into practice within their science classroom. Follow-up sessions encourage teachers to reflect and report back to the group.
Time to collaborate with colleagues
Teachers have a wealth of experience to share. Our PL workshops include time — something that’s in short supply for teachers - to engage and collaborate with colleagues from other schools.
Ready for the next class
Great PL must be practical. Every session is crafted to ensure teachers walk away with something concrete that can be used the very next day. Teachers will also take home exclusive resources.
Stile’s teaching experts
Stile’s team is in the unique position of having collectively observed or run thousands of science classes. Our worldwide network of teacher advisors have seen many more. This experience is what informs the ongoing development of Stile, and PL is no exception.
We don’t forget to have fun
All of this sounds like very serious and important stuff, and it is. But we’re also very big on keeping the joy of science teaching present, and reckon it’s important to have a bit of fun along the way.
