“The Challenge of Change”

Click here to view DATTA QLD Conference 2018 sessions

The conference is designed to explore current and emerging practice, showcase professional development resources and facilitate collaborative and reflective thinking.

Teaching and Learning in today’s society can be a challenge, and with changes such as government directives, implementation of the Australian Curriculum and using current and emerging technologies, we chose this particular wording for the theme.

To each and every one, the challenges and acceptance of change, is going to be different. The 2018 conference theme wording was specifically chosen to encompass these differences and demonstrate that a many faceted approach to the challenges associated with any sort of change in the classrooms of today is manageable.

Presenters and exhibitors are being challenged and encouraged to demonstrate how they can assist you as a teacher with the following areas of enquiry:

  • Working together towards tomorrow’s classroom
  • Connecting and engaging with colleagues and industry
  • Embracing current and emerging technologies.
