Let’s Talk: Technology, Sex and Relationships

Course dates and to register >>

Course description

This course aims to build the capacity of educators of year 7-12 students to address issues arising around the use of technology as it relates to sexuality and relationships. Specifically, the course addresses respectful relationships and how they translate to an online space, pornography, sexting and the safe use of dating apps. 

Teaching about consent is a central element of the course. Discussions will cover best practice approaches towards education about these topics and focusing on the health and safety of young people.  Upon completion of the course, educators will be able to confidently identify and implement engaging learning activities in the classroom. They will also be better equipped to offer support and guidance to young people about how to access help if issues arise from their use of technology in relation to sex and relationships. 

A wide range of resources will be provided and recommended which will allow for further learning following the completion of the course. The course will be delivered over 90 minutes in our online classroom and uses interactive, engaging and informative teaching strategies, enabling participants to ask questions, reflect on practice and share ideas and resources to support their professional learning.
