Webinars and videos

Video and web formats for professional learning activities


PETAA increasingly uses video materials in resources. When an interactive webinar format with supporting resources is used for professional learning, recordings can be made available to PETAA members.

Partnership projects, such as Global Words and the Copyright Agency Connect series are able to make recorded webinars and video materials available to the general public. More recent uses of video include the Project 40 series of videos and essays and the use of video to accompany PETAA Paper 196.

The Donald Graves Address

To honour the importance of Donald Graves’ contribution to the teaching profession, ALEA and PETAA collaborated to support The Donald Graves Address.

In each address speakers revisit key messages from Donald Graves’ writings and research and draw connections with contemporary practice: identifying the roadblocks thwarting children’s natural intent to express themselves; challenging current orthodoxies; maintaining writing as a central, powerful and exciting process at the heart of children’s meaning making. The 2015 Address was made by Lisa Kervin.
