This site is dedicated to the professional development of the staff of Garin College.
The Garin College Board of Trustee's strategic goals are focused on:
- data gathering and use on junior students;
- effective pedagogy with all students but a focus on Maori and slower learners;
- blended learning pedagogy;
- special character development;
As a staff, Professional Development in 2015 will support these goals but will focus on blended learning pedagogy.
Blended learning is a term used to describe the way online learning is being combined with traditional classroom methods and independent study to create a hybrid teaching methodology.
