We chat to Sarah Triffitt, AMEB Tasmania Speech & Drama Examiner, about learning opportunities for students amidst the 2020 disruptions.

Sarah will walk us through how to convert projects to the Drama & Communication syllabus for a recorded exam and more:

  • An explanation of why this is a terrific learning vehicle for home schooling
  • How the syllabus can be used for development of presenting and speaking skills and for building confidence in all ages.
  • What resources are available to teachers, parents, and students.
  • How researching a topic of interest cultivates engaged learners and their knowledge development.

Registered attendees will receive a FREE download copy of our AMEB 2020 Speech & Drama Manual of Syllabuses - bring it along to refer to throughout the webinar.

Sarah Triffitt

Sarah Triffitt is currently, like much of the world's population, in isolation with her kids.

With children enrolled in primary, secondary and tertiary education from home, she has first-hand experience of some of the challenges and opportunities involved in remote learning today.

Sarah is currently an AMEB Examiner of Speech and Drama syllabuses in Tasmania. She has been teaching the syllabuses since 1995, and also enjoys adjudicating at local Eisteddfodau, working as a diction coach for Opera, and has chaired a specialist panel for the TQA.

Recently upgrading her qualifications by completing a Bachelor of Media and Communications in 2019, Sarah has a deep understanding of the inevitable adaptations to the AMEB's Speech and Drama syllabuses that have been developed for these challenging times, and to assist and support the transition of traditional examination format to a digital experience so that it is a comfortable and smooth transfer for the candidates, their teachers and parents.
