2021 Australian Curriculum Conference

Reimagining curriculum and assessment

From educational goals to practice

Thursday 3 to Friday 4 June 2021

Hotel Grand Chancellor, Brisbane

The Education Goals for Young Australians, as set out in the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration (December 2019), and a renewed Australian Curriculum provide opportunities for the profession to re-interrogate practice.


The conference will focus on three strands:

Strand 1: How could we reimagine curriculum, assessment and pedagogy?

Strand 2: How do excellence and equity work together in schools?

Strand 3: How do we ensure all young Australians become confident and creative individuals,
                successful lifelong learners, and active and informed members of the community?


The conference aims to provide opportunities for educators to:

  • Understand changes in:

    • national initiatives and reforms

    • the national learning progressions and online formative assessment project

    • Australian Curriculum

    • expectations of governments through the new Educational Goals for Young Australians.

  • Consider and reflect on the impact these reforms will have for schools, teachers and leaders of curriculum

  • Plan for action in their context.


Attending the conference will enable delegates to:

  • Understand the breadth of scholarship that can inform teaching practice by examining evidence informed theory and practice

  • Connect curriculum goals, policy and ideas to classroom practice

  • Broaden their professional experience through the collection of a suite of professional tools

  • Network and build relationships, learn from other through sharing and hearing about a diverse range of educational practices that promote the goals for young Australians.


Who should attend the Conference?

All educators: Teachers, curriculum leaders, school leaders, teacher educators, pre-service teachers and curriculum developers.
