Calling For Big Conference Ideas
The 2012 Big Picture Annual Conference is in Canberra from October 24th, 25th and 26th (new dates).
We seek your big ideas to make it a great conference in which educators and students from around Australia and overseas can come together to learn deeply and share wisdom.
There will be a range of presentations and workshops over the three days.
They will be led by educators, young people and community members. Big Picture Education is focussed in engaging families, communities and mentors in education. The conference will be too.
A good conference revolves around great learning opportunities.
Here are some of the themes we plan to explore:
Big Picture and the national curriculum
Building powerful project teams
Building a ‘researchful’ school
And more tinkering
We plan to have hands-on workshops including:
Building your advisory culture
Make a Suggestion
What do you think: Is there something you think needs to be explored? Now is the time to put your idea forward. Ask your students, what do they want to see, do and learn?
