Intro to CRT Teaching

Mel from Wodonga CRT Network has developed this course intended to assist graduate teachers who are beginning CRT work. Click the link on the page Intro to CRT teaching Mel says:

I have now produced a new course "An introduction to Relief Teaching for Graduate Teachers".  This course is designed to give beginning/graduate Relief Teachers a professional awareness of CRT work and support the transition from student into working teacher.  It may not benefit the majority of your members (though they are more than welcome to attend) as it is intended to give an initial set of answers to many commonly asked questions by Graduates.

Unlike most of the other online courses available through ClassCover's Relief Teacher Association, this one is completely free and does not require ClassCover or RTA membership to access.  There is, however, minimal advertising for other ClassCover/RTA online courses (in optional content sections and a few video titles).

Venue: Online Delivery via the OpenLearning website.
Date: "Always on".  There are no sessions or "classes", participants can join and complete the course at their own pace.
Duration: Approx 3 - 3.5 hours for the average graduate student.

It includes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes of content delivery spread across 14 videos with the rest of the time allotted to the completion of activities.
