Successful Learning Conference 2019

25 Years of Successful Learning: Looking to the Future
This annual conference focuses on issues and developments in the provision of quality education for students K–12.

1 - 2 July 2019

In 2019, we will be focusing on the implementation of 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 Aboriginal and Indigenous education, assessment and decision-making, communications, behaviour and social skills, literacy and numeracy, technology, students’ mental health and trauma informed practice. Presentations and workshops will be given by teachers, consultants, community-based personnel and academics, from metropolitan and rural locations in NSW, interstate and overseas.
