The conference theme

The Australian Curriculum's Cross Curriculum Priorities:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures
  • Sustainability
  • Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia.

This conference aims to build the capacity of curriculum leaders by exploring the Cross Curriculum Priorities. If you are the person responsible for implementing the new Australian Curriculum in your school you should join us for this exciting conference which will present a range of views from curriculum experts on how we can conceptualise the new Australian Curriculum.

This is a chance for everyone interested in Australian Curriculum - teachers, curriculum leaders, principals, governments, education authorities, professional associations, parents and students - to receive the latest information and participate in discussion about curriculum in Australia.
