2017 Australian Curriculum Conference

Conference Theme:

What If? Embracing complexity through curriculum innovation

By asking "What If?", this exciting conference will present a dynamic range of views on how we can embrace the complexities of curriculum, explore diverse perspectives and contested issues, radically rethink learning and teaching, and bring creative and innovative curriculum to scale.

Conference Strands:

What if we radically rethought the learning, teaching, and assessment of curriculum to meet the needs of all learners?
What if leaders changed the way curriculum was thought about in schools?
What if curriculum helped us take advantage of diverse perspectives and deal with contested issues?

This conference is for everyone - primary and secondary teachers, middle level leaders, curriculum leaders, principals, government leaders, education authorities, professional associations, academics - with thought provoking keynote presentations, masterclasses, workshops and a TeachMeet session.

This conference aims to:
develop teachers' knowledge and understanding of curriculum innovation,
provide a platform for the sharing of curriculum innovation and diversity issues in schools,
raise teachers' and leaders' understanding of diversity and contested issues,
share research perspectives of curriculum innovation.
