As part of our efforts to engage our members, as well as our belief in life-long learning, SDEA has formed an ETLA-EC Community of Practice (ETLA-EC CoP) where ETLA-EC alumni will come together every quarter to share best practices and new knowledge to advance professional practice. Each ETLA-EC CoP session will focus on a different topic of interest, and will provide participants with the time and space to reflect on their teaching practice, as well as share and learn from their peers in a casual, relaxed environment.
ETLA-EC CoP aims to provide members with a platform for networking and support.
For the inaugural ETLA-EC CoP, participants will discuss and reflect on the recent changes within the arts education/pre-school sector vis-à-vis their practice. The session will also be an opportunity for networking.
This ETLA-EC CoP will include a small graduation celebration for the ETLA-EC participants. Bring food/drinks!
*Please note that ETLA-EC CoP is only open to ETLA-EC Alumni.
