A message from David Robertson The provision of high quality professional learning opportunities is a key part of the work of Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ). ISQ is proud to offer this extensive calendar of professional learning opportunities to member schools. ISQ remains dedicated to providing learning and development activities that are accessible to all of our member schools. During 2016 more than 9,000 participants engaged in more than 300 events and professional learning opportunities designed to promote, support and develop independent schooling in Queensland. Our 2017 calendar of events offers a wide range of activities, projects and programs designed to assist schools in their pursuit of achieving excellence in educational outcomes, school management and governance. Events will be delivered face-toface as well as virtual and blended modes. ISQ’s Connect&Learn learning management system allows members to complete self-paced learning or to connect with each other through online communities of practices.

In addition to events held at the ISQ Professional Learning Centre in central Brisbane, a number of briefings, forums and workshops will be held in regional centres across the state. The learning and development needs of our regional schools will be further met through travel subsidies and online sessions.

Contents

A key event on our 2017 calendar is the biennial ISQ State Forum. The theme for this year’s ISQ State Forum Limitless Possibilities will challenge participants to consider what the future of education will look like for their schools and students. Our panel of high profile presenters will be sure to inspire.

Why be involved in ISQ’s Building Assessment Communities social moderation activities? Student Services

In the past two years, over 2,000 teachers from member schools have participated in Building Assessment Communities social moderation activities. In 2017 Independent Schools Queensland will once again offer P–Year 10 teachers, the opportunity to be involved in BAC social moderation activities. Social moderation activities allow teachers from member schools to come together to talk about their student work samples in a supportive, collaborative environment. Participation in social moderation events provides teachers with opportunities to: yy share their work samples and develop a sense of the expectations of others about the Australian Curriculum achievement standards yy calibrate those expectations against their own understandings of the achievement standards and negotiate adjustments if necessary yy discuss other aspects of their professional practice. Schools are invited to submit an expression of interest to hold a social moderation session in 2017 at a time and location of their choosing. Interested schools should refer to the 2017 Guidelines for Building Assessment Communities. ISQ will work hard to accommodate all requests. 44
