Please join Murdoch Education for a free seminar presented by Dr Helen Dempsey, Murdoch University Lecturer.

Many teachers spend time working as a relief teacher and this session highlights some of the challenges of this form of casual employment but also aims to provide ideas on how to make this a positive teaching experience. Drawing on her research into early career casual teachers and her own experiences of casual teaching, Helen Dempsey (PhD) will unpack specific strategies for finding work, engaging students in their learning and making connections with other teachers. This session will also explore avenues for accessing professional learning, an important component of ongoing registration. Helen will also explore casual teacher professional identity.

This is an opportunity to network with other casual teachers, and potentially participate in some ongoing research. Helen will also share her tips for navigating the staff room! Come along and share your experiences.

Does school segregation matter for school outcomes? This talk presents a synthesis of social, behavioral, and educational research on the topic conducted from 1980-2020 in a number of OECD countries, but primarily the US. The preponderance of research confirms that both short- and long-term academic outcomes like academic achievement and educational attainment, as well as nonacademic outcomes including intergroup relations and occupational and income attainment, are positively associated with attending diverse schools. Overall, policies that foster school diversity are effective reform strategies for educational improvement and preparing youth for participation in a globalizing economy and a pluralistic society.
