This page contains the strand information for the 2018 AVID Australia Summer Institute. Here you will find descriptions of all the strands that are being offered at the Institute this year, and recommendations about the target audience for each strand.
When selecting strands, it is best to take into account the needs of the site team at your school. Please note that strands need to attract a minimum number of participants to be able to run. If you are unsure which strands to book staff in for, please contact the AVID Australia team and we will be happy to help.
There are five new strands this year along with three revised strands. The “star” icon indicates which strands are new and the “R” icon indicates strands that have been revised.
In the coming USA school year, several strands will be revised with the new digital teaching and learning focus incorporated. AVID Australia will introduce those strands next year (2019). Critical Reading, Leadership and Advanced Digital Teaching and Learning strands are being developed specifically for Google and Microsoft platforms.
