Accolades for festival of learning

The 2017 Festival of Teaching attracted 250 conference-goers to Casuarina Senior College.

The 26 August forum, arranged by the Professional Teachers’ Association of the Northern Territory, included delegates, trade displays and presenters.

The conference theme — Sharing success: shaping our future — comprised 39 interactive workshops, and introduced keynote speakers Mr Mark Collard and Dr Joseph Lo Bianco.

Mr Collard described the Difference Model, a simple four step approach to education, and Dr Lo Bianco addressed educational linguistics, with an emphasis on the role of teachers in language planning, policies and programs.

Feedback from the attendees included, “I have attended the conference each year and gained a tremendous amount from them.”, “Engaging and insightful. Plenty of new ideas, and Mark inspired me to look at the learning environment in a new way.”, and “Fantastic ideas to use in the classroom; so much fun and very practical.”
