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.

These stimulating and interactive one hour sessions will cover the following broad topics:
- Creative and critical thinking (5 sessions)
- Student voice and agency (7 sessions)
- Intercultural understanding (5 sessions)
- Moral and ethics education (5 sessions)

Each series offers five or seven sessions focusing on important sub-topics together with case studies that demonstrate them in practice. You may opt for just one session, a few or the whole series (at a discounted rate). Scroll down see the full year's presenter list by term.

ACSA welcomes you to join us in this enjoyable and very practical method for accessing PD right from your desktop!
