A number of our staff are or have been members of the Victorian Association for Teachers of English (VATE). This April Anne Harris will be providing the keynote address for the VATE Leadership Conference.
Speaking on the theme of Creative Ecologies in Secondary Contexts, Anne will explore how English teachers might engage with the Australian Curriculum’s ‘critical and creative thinking’ General Capability. Her presentation will directly addresses the challenges that teachers worldwide are finding in their efforts to build creative skills and capacities in their students, while focusing on disciplinary knowledge and success.
