Learning Resource Centre: 2017 Professional Learning Team Resources

Below are some resources from the LRC aimed to help staff on their work on their Professional Learning Plans They of the following topics; cultures of thinking, gendered pedagogy, Mathematica, morale, spaces for learning, mission to Mars and transnationalism. The items are hyperlinked to the catalogue by logging in there you can reserve the item if it is out or look at what else we have. Each topic is also a keyword in the catalogue for easy searching.

The shelving for this years Professional Learning Resources is at the back of the LRC near the entrance to L1.01.
Mission to Mars items remain on the Non-Fiction shelving to allow for students wishing to use it to find it.


Staff can review items they find useful for PLP (or anything else) by logging into the catalogue using their three letter staff code. For example "GUR" No PIN is needed, though if you would prefer one the LRC can arrange one for you.

To add a review to something you have borrowed either search for the item and select write a review from under the cover image or go into your loan history, find the item and select write a review next to the item details.

This is what you will see when you go in to write a review. Details can be filled in however you wish. Reviews will be checked then become visible to the school community.

To access a review click on the reviews tab on the record of an item and click the down arrow to expand.

Spaces for Learning


Mathematica doesn't have much in the library. But forums and articles direct users to one place when starting off or when they have questions. Back to the Wolfram website with it's discussion boards and training courses.

Mission to Mars

Please refer fo the Mission to Mars page for relevant resources.

Listed there are the books and articles from the library display, some ideas of where else to look and links to the work being done by students.

Cultures of Thinking


Transnationalism seems to get written on with other topics as perspective. It appears that much of the published work is behind a paywall.

Gendered Pedagogy


This is a big topic with three main possible angles, student, staff or community focused. Some of the following are more study skills aimed at students become less stressed, more confident. Items may lead more towards motivation than morale.
