2019 webinar program

Welcome to ACSA's 2019 webinar series

Once again 2018 has seen a range of valued professional learning topics delivered via our webinar medium and in 2019 ACSA will be offering even more!

The format of Tuesday evenings remains the same but four separate series will be dispersed throughout the year. Participants can look forward to an amazing array of speakers from specialist academics, to schools to curriculum writers - 20 of whom have already locked in to present.

These stimulating and interactive one hour sessions will cover the following topics:
- Creative and critical thinking
- Student voice and agency
- Intercultural understanding
- Moral and ethics education

Each series will offer a number of sessions ranging from 4-7 focusing on important sub-topics and/case studies that demonstrate them in practice - scroll down see presenter list for each term. ACSA welcomes you to join us in this enjoyable and very practical method for accessing PD right from your desktop!
