COHESIVE, INTENSIVE, ENGAGING: UNPACKING THE ELEMENTS OF QUALITY INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES FOR ALL

hands up in class

Monday 2 & Tuesday 3 July 2018
The Epping Club, Rawson St, Epping. [Event parking is limited*]


This annual conference focuses on issues and developments in the provision of quality education for students K–12, in particular, for students for whom teachers are providing adjustments. In 2018, we will be focusing on implementing educational practices that are inclusive of students with a range of educational, social and emotional needs. The conference will engage with research and practices that examine and demonstrate education practices that can be used with fidelity, and professional wisdom, across differing curriculum areas and year levels. Specific focus will be given to literacy, numeracy, behaviour support, technology, students' mental health, and assessment and decision-making. Presentations and workshops will be given by teachers, consultants, community-based personnel and academics, from metropolitan and rural locations in NSW, interstate and overseas.

Participants may attend the conference as a stand-alone event or as part of the Certificate in Educational Studies (Learning Support), which includes five evening workshops on Thursdays in July, August and September.


* Limited parking available on site at the Epping Club. A request for parking can be sent to Rachel Payne at rachel.payne@sydney.edu.au for consideration. Preference will be given to regional drivers, drivers with an Australian Disability Parking Permit and presenters. Should you be eligible for a car space, your registration number will be required for entry into the car park. Where possible please make all reasonable efforts to car pool. Because spaces are very limited, it is recommended you travel by train to the event where possible. The train station is a 2–3 minute walk from the Epping Club and is located on the Northern Line and the Newcastle and Central Coast Line, please see http://www.sydneytrains.info/ for timetables. Lastly, there is all-day unrestricted parking available in the surrounding streets. The Epping Club recommends Chesterfield Road and Chelmsford Avenue (7–10 minutes on foot to the venue). It is, however, advisable to arrive early to secure a space.
