Due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions, our usual mode of course delivery isn’t possible. Instead, we are offering ‘virtual’ THRASS courses delivered using the Zoom online meeting platform. Participants will continue to receive their physical course materials and interact in real time with a THRASS trainer and other attendees.

IMPORTANT – Places are limited, please book early to allow plenty of time for your course materials to arrive.

As in mathematics, it is not just the correct answer that is important, the working memory and understanding of how to achieve the correct answer are vital to the cognitive process (deep understanding) for future learning.

  • “Great to finally be able to access THRASS training without having to travel! Loved that we received our course materials and THRASS in time to play along at home.”

  • “A great opportunity to learn and network with teachers from around Australia and overseas.”

  • “The trainer was so natural and personal, it was easy to forget we were in a virtual classroom. Using Zoom made it very easy for the group to interact and participate in activities.”
