Re-imagining our Professionalism

Wednesday 6th September 2017

Learning from the past as we head for the future


At a time when the Queensland curriculum is undertaking its most significant change in over two decades, the Australian College of Educators is convening a special event, for teachers from every sector, to contemplate teacher professionalism, with a particular focus on historic curriculum changes of the past and the lessons they can teach us for the future.

A panel of selected guests with specialised knowledge will respond to the theme together with associated matters ranging from perceptions of increased work pressures to external examinations, high-stakes testing, and the ever-present challenge of maintaining perspective.
