New Learning Advisory Panels at SLM

The Learning Team at SLM is thrilled to move into a very busy year with two new Learning Advisory Panels – Primary and Secondary teachers.

These teachers will support SLM in our consultation processes with teachers and development of new programs. Teachers from Government, Catholic and Independent schools, from various locations around NSW including Illawarra, Inner West, Parramatta and Western Sydney, and from both mainstream and special schools, are all represented.

We have started the process by asking secondary teachers for their advice on new program ideas for the renovated spaces in the Hyde Park Barracks Museum. Meanwhile, Primary teachers have been presented with ideas for the new program set to be launched mid-year for years 5 and 6 at the Museum of Sydney.

Insights provided by the paricipating teachers have already been extremely helpful, but the long term relationship with them will be most invaluable.

Are you a teacher and interested in the learning programs we are developing? Sign up to our Teacher eNews to receive the latest updates. When you sign up, you’ll also receive a complimentary double pass to visit one of our museums.
