Teacher Professional Learning Courses at Taronga Zoo

Taronga Zoo’s NSW Department of Education team develop and deliver accredited Professional Learning courses for teachers and school executive. Courses are either registered or non-registered and are delivered at Taronga Zoo Sydney or via Adobe Connect sessions.

Specialising in best practice teaching pedagogy to engage students, Taronga’s courses focus on the Science and Science and Technology syllabuses, the new Geography syllabus and ways to integrate the mandatory cross curricular priority areas such as Sustainability, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.

Project Based Learning and youth leadership are other focus areas with specialist courses designed to assist teachers with syllabus interpretation and integration, using Taronga as a rich and powerful learning resource for students to engage with nature.
