Te Kura, in collaboration with the Tertiary Education Commission, (a Government organisation who are stewards of careers in Aotearoa NZ) runs a program called Inspiring the Future. It has been running at Te Kura with amazing success. It may be a blueprint for running your own careers exploration event or using the available resources from the Australian version of Inspiring the Future.
Inspiring the Future encourages students to be curious and to explore future pathways. In these sessions students are invited to try and guess what a person does for a living. After this they head into a breakout room for a deep dive with a person of their choosing. The hardest decision is choosing which expert to listen to. The same principles and processes can adapted for any context, both face to face and online.
Join Trudy Harrison from Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu in New Zealand as she takes you through a live session of Inspiring the Future.

24 October 2019 - Te Kura teachers coming from face-to-face environments often grieve for aspects of their professional self they feel they only know how to express in a face-to-face teaching environment. When tasked with supporting teachers in using a wider range of online teaching tools, my starting point was asking teachers which part of their face-to-face teaching selves they missed the most. We then proceeded to find ways to use digital tools to bring these teaching selves online. Selected examples of practice will be shared and workshop participants will be invited to share or brainstorm ways of bringing their best teaching selves online.
