HISTORY TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE

TUESDAY 2 OCTOBER – THURSDAY 4 OCTOBER 2018
CANBERRA

REGISTRATIONS OPEN SOON

Welcome to the 2018 History Teachers Association of Australia Annual conference website.  The ACT History Teachers Association are looking forward to hosting this year’s conference in Canberra.

This year’s theme is People, Power and Perspectives.  Our committee has been working tirelessly over the past 6 months to put together a program that covers a range of topics and age levels. This year’s conference aims to inspire, encourage conversation and the sharing of ideas, challenge perspectives and provide practical enhancement to classroom teaching.
We have some great keynote speakers already lined up with a few more under wraps.  Watch this space.

The ACT History Teachers Association have been pleased to work on the conference program with the History Teachers Association of NSW, who have provided sessions focussed on the new NSW Senior Syllabus.  

We will of course spend some time in the cultural institutions here in Canberra.  Being in the national capital we are in a unique position to utilise these educational resources and to tap into exclusive exhibitions during our social program and excursion visits.  The National Library of Australia and Museum of Australian Democracy have also been very supportive in providing us with wonderful conference facilities over the three days.

This website has all you need to know about the conference and is replacing the traditional printed program. Please explore.  We will continue to update as necessary but you should have all you need to place your registration and choose your session workshops.

We look forward seeing you this October.

Ms Ann Parry
Conference Convenor
President, ACT History Teachers Association
