COVID-19 Event Information

All TTA venues continue to work with advice provided by the NSW Health Department in managing the risks associated with the current COVID-19 situation. While the current risk is low, TTA venues will be taking steps to help provide a safe environment for our courses. There will be increased cleaning and disinfecting of all areas, and venues will be providing ample hand sanitiser pumps. While venues will be taking all the care that they can, we also stress the need for course participants to take responsibility for their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around them. If you are not feeling well or showing symptoms of COVID-19, please don’t attend this event. Wash your hands regularly. Avoid shaking hands where possible. Practice cough etiquette, coughing into a tissue or your elbow and washing your hands afterwards. Thank you for your understanding.

In this workshop participants will be presented with a range of strategies and resources to support teaching and learning in a Business Studies classroom. Delivery will be through a powerpoint presentation supported by interactive discussion. An accompanying workshop booklet will provide a valuable resource base while additional material will be available to download. A whiteboard will provide a basis for recording ideas and suggestions.
The interactive ideas sharing format and group workshop sessions will provide an opportunity to learn and share ideas, resources and develop networks for future teaching and learning.
