The approach is based on a blend of direct instruction and broader social-constructivist theory, with a particular focus on dialogic learning and self-discovery. The learning outcomes in each module work through Biggs’ SOLO (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes) model, from surface level learning via identification, articulation, description and recognition, through to the deeper (relational and extended/abstract) learning associated with interpretation, relation, discussion, planning, application and evaluation.
In taking on the Educators’ Wellbeing Toolkit it is imperative that schools understand the investment they are making in the long term wellbeing of their professional community and the commitment it will require to achieve this. In order to fully realise the Toolkit’s outcomes, participating schools will need to fully own the implementation of the various elements of the program and their staff’s commitment to undertaking and engaging in the process. In partnership with participating schools, CORE Education commits to proving a highly effective, accessible and practical framework which, if undertaken with purpose, will have both short term and long term benefits for individuals and their professional communities.
