The proven, step-by-step course by evidence coach Selena Woodward, teaches you how to see the evidence in the everyday. How to see how you’re already hitting the standards and to confidently create evidence that will pass accreditation, portfolio assessment and (most importantly) help you improve the impact you’re having in your classroom.
We also know that, putting together your portfolio of evidence can be hard. It’s time consuming and it can feel overwhelming.
If it were easy to put your evidence together, you have done it already, wouldn’t you? Because you want (and deserve) to progress your career journey!
I get it! Every time you try and set aside time to get this done in the “next school Holidays”, “ mid semester break” or when you’ve got X, Y and Z all lined up something inexplicable happens and it just DOESN’T GET DONE
Sure, we might have learned about the standards and professional practice at uni. or a in a PD session. But, as you’ve probably realised…
At uni, you might have learned to reflect on your practice. But efficient, well written evidence, as you quickly come to learn, works a little differently. Hey, It may even be that, like me, the standards didn’t even exist when you started your career!
If you continue to be in the dark about reflecting with the teaching standards, the process is going to continue to feel like swimming through mud. Your portfolio will never be completed and worse, all the valuable insights that you would gain (insights that will help you to improve your impact on your students, colleagues and site), will remain hidden from you. You’ll be stuck in a place of doubt when….
My years of experience have taught me exactly what those steps are and how to teach them to you. Even better, there are a lot of tips and short cuts in each of those steps that will help you to create your evidence faster, more effectively and with more meaning.
Imagine just for a moment you had a step-by-step process for evidence creation that creates space for a level of growth and development you never knew possible.
The complete step-by-step program for confidently creating evidence of impact
“Working through the Evidence Engine course was the best PD I undertook last year. The way it was structured meant I could fit it into a busy schedule and work at my own pace. The online community enabled me to ask questions and seek support when needed. It was also a good way to interact with colleagues who were asking similar questions to your own. My understanding of the Standards was greatly deepened and I am very grateful for Selena and her team for putting the course together and offering it in this format.“”
We’ll start with the most important piece of this puzzle… YOU. To create a powerful portfolio full of amazing evidence of practice, you’re going to need to start thinking like a Reflective Practitioner.
Specifically, we’ll explore three of the most critical areas of reflective practice and the way you think about them. I will guide you through a process that will get you UNSTUCK and ON TRACK, so you can face any challenge with clarity and confidence, knowing that you’ve got this!
and then, once you’ve started thinking a little differently, we’ll move on to…
Most educators think that the goal of evidence is to write about the standards. That’s where they go wrong. That rubric has focus areas. Those Focus Areas have descriptors. The descriptors are where all the clues are!
You will learn what you should really be focusing your time and energy on for maximum impact. I’m going to share quicker, easier ways to approach the evidence process so that you feel confident that you’re getting it right.
By the end of this module, you’ll be able to use those standards confidently to connect your stories of practice to the focus areas and standards.
Successful evidence is more than just a collection of photographs or work samples. It contains carefully selected and well annotated artefacts that support your story.
Without a clear understanding of how to find them and what to do with artefacts, your portfolio could fall flat. You need frameworks and scaffolds to help you get this right
By the end of this module, you’ll be so good at annotating artefacts you’ll know how to coach someone else through the process. We’ll even give you room to practice just that!
“I’m not sure I’m ready for this accreditation thing…”
Has the voice inside your head ever said that?
It’s such a common fear that nearly all educators feel. It comes from a lack of understanding of the impact you ARE making in your classroom.
With some simple teaching strategies, I can show you how you can measure the impact you’re having in your classroom in JUST ONE LESSON, without any extra work. In fact, you can use these techniques at any career stage (HA and LEAD peeps)
You’ll be blown away by what these techniques reveal and very proud of yourself.
More than that, you’re going to have a very clear picture of how powerful your impact is and (if you’re lucky) your students might even teach you about something you can in your practice!
There’s an implementation week at the end of this module to give you a chance to put this all into practice and then we move to…
It’s the ultimate goal for every teacher… to reach more students, to increase our impact beyond our own classrooms, to grow your practice.
and to do all that, we need to be confident that we’ve got it right.
I get it.
We all know the power of assessment for learning and so, like the good English teacher I am, I’m using my pedagogies to help you REALLY see how far you’ve come. Create, share and validate not only your own evidence but someone else’s too.
By the end of this module you will look back at week 1 and realise how far you’ve come. It’s going to feel amazing.
we’re not done there. We want to make sure you have a plan!
When you complete the Evidence Engine, you’re going to walk away with more than just evidence. You’re going to walk away with a plan. You will know exactly what to reflect on next (in fact, you’ll never be short of something to reflect on… every again). You will know what professional learning you need to ask for to increase your impact and how to measure the impact it’s had on you and your kids.
This module reveals the future proof plan that will see you organised and focused on improving the impact that you are having in your classroom every single day
You’ll have completed evidence sets that pass accreditation or assessment AND help catapult your teaching skills a level you never though possible!
By the end of these six modules, you will have completely transformed the way you think about evidence and portfolios of practice. You’ll be ready to create a complete portfolio of evidence, you’ll be confident that it’s full of the right evidence and, you’ll be able to teach somebody else how to do the same.
Your local department for education runs a course on creating evidence, you studied it at university and countless Facebook groups have popped up with heaps of advice in them!
Information about evidencing practice seems to be everywhere!
So, why are so many of my students telling me how tired hey are of wasting hours of their life trying to put their evidence together? Why were they worrying about whether or not they’re writing about the right things. Writing and re-writing and feeling even more overwhelmed!
Sure, some limp their way over the finish line but so many of us just get to the point where the whole process stops us in our tracks. Career progression gets deferred.. again… because our job is hard enough already without all of this!
Thousands of educators out there are being prevented from moving their career forward and understanding the amazing impact they are having in their classrooms.
I’m not ok with that! Are you?
I’m lucky enough to have coached people through accreditation at all levels. I have worked with teachers all over Australia and have been able to create a toolkit that gets results. Quickly.
With the RIGHT information, at a pace that suits you, in a step-by-step format that will hold your hand as you go through the process of evidence creation.
I want to get this training into the hands of as many educators (and pre-service teachers!) as I can so I can help move us all forward faster.
Knowing what I know now, if someone had offered me a clear pathway forward with all the guess work taken away… well.. I reckon I would have happily traded thousands to get back my time and take away the stress!
Evidence Engine is not just another $49 short course to get some PD hours on your record. It’s a small investment in yourself and in your classroom practice that will pay you huge dividends in the future.
One that will pay you back for the rest of your career as you continue to confidently work with the standards in a way that removes barriers to career progression and helps you to connect to the impact you’re having in your practice. It will, honestly, help you become an even better teacher.
Even though this eight week, self paced course is worth thousands, I am 100% committed to getting this into the hands of as many educators as I can and so, until Thursday the 18th of August, I’m taking a huge chunk off the price and offering it to you for just 4 monthly payments of $250. (AUD)
I’m also throwing in a few options…
You can email our support team at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org) , show them you’ve done the work and, if it hasn’t worked for you, we will happily give you a full refund.
Because, you can try the first four modules and see if it’s a good fit. Yes, we might attract some nefarious souls who sign up, pinch our resources and ask for their money back, but that’s ok. It’s a risk we’re willing to take. You see, our goal is to help as many teachers as possible feel empowered by this process. If offering this money back guarantee makes it easier for you to take the leap, then we’re going to make it happen!
If it doesn’t work for you. Just email the team, show us you did the work and we’ll give you a refund.
It’s a no brainer!
Community is what makes the world a better place. So, with membership to the Evidence Engine, you get exclusive access to our online community. Accessed via Facebook, to make it super easy to find and work with, this bonus group will be the place to connect and find support.
The group will be available for ten weeks from the day the course first opens. If you’ve been missing a mentor, needing a pal who gets it, or just wanting a place where you can ask a question and KNOW you’ll get the answer you’ve been looking for then you’ll love this.
It’s also a place where you can access Selena.. LIVE.. once a week..
Which leads me to our next bonus….
Remember, you want answers and you want support. We want to make sure that you get so good at evidence gathering that you can teach somebody else the entire process… using the awesome materials you’ll get inside of the evidence engine.
Every week, for eight weeks, Selena will show up live for one hour of group coaching via Microsoft Teams. She’ll be there to walk you through things, to answer your questions and to celebrate every win with you! 🙂 Any excuse for a confetti cannon!!
It can be hard to make time for this process. We get that. Teaching is hard enough! We’re here to help make things easier NOT harder. Remember, the processes you’ll get once you’re in the Evidence Engine will step you through piece by piece until you have an amazing evidence set!
That doesn’t mean we can magically add another 2 hours to your week though… so, we thought we’d share our quick guide to time management. Give you permission to say “no” to a few things and share an amazing meditation that will help keep you in the zone.
When you join the Evidence Engine™, you get access to an eight week, self-paced, online course. FOR LIFE. The modules we provide you with are made up of bitesize videos and exercises that will transform you from struggling, overwhelmed teacher with awful paperwork to do… into empowered practioner, who knows their impact and is happily creating evidence of it…With ease!
That makes everything you’re getting worth nearly $3000!
$2749 to be exact (and that’s not counting that FB group! – priceless!)

Evidence Engine™ was specifically created with teachers (of any stage) in mind. What makes THIS program different than any other course you’ll take on the standards can be broken into two distinct parts
#1: A DIFFERENT MINDSET – Since the standards first appeared, I’ve been busy working to find ways to make them more meaningful for myself and my students. I don’t just tell you what the standards are, or even what to do with them, I help you experience them in a new way. In an empowering way, that will help remove doubts and judgement and get real results for you and (as you’re working to understand your impact) your students too.
#2: A FOCUS ON IMPACT – Inside, The Evidence Engine™, I talk to you as teachers, educators and adults who have an impact everyday. Not as someone who needs to do paperwork…
Relief teachers have an extra layer of complexity when it comes to reflection and accreditation. Often, you’re not in one place for very long!
That’s why, inside the Evidence Engine™, there’s a module in which we plan, deliver and reflect on a lesson taught. I give you step by step strategies to help you get evidence of impact in only 20 mins of a lesson.
Imagine being able to do that once a day as you relieve? The results create great pieces of evidence and look amazing to the teacher you were covering too.
If you’re a reliever, we’re going to help you see the opportunities you have to impact on the classrooms of others. You’ve got superpowers you don’t even realise you have.. let me show them to you
We all only have 24 hours in a day. If you’re not getting the coaching and support you need to start getting the results you want for yourself, your career and your students then you’re right… you’re not going to have time for anything else. That’s why your evidence still isn’t done…
How might things start to change if you learnt how to reflect on your practice and see what was actually working and what you should drop? Wouldn’t you have more time freed up? Especially if your reflective practice starts to help you streamline where you should spend your time.
