researchED Melbourne

1st July 2017 @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm

researchED is back! We’re proud and delighted to be able to return for our third annual conference in Melbourne where teachers, researchers and academics can get together to discuss ways in which education in Australia can use evidence to drive better teaching and learning. Come along and find out what research tells us about what education could look like with 21st century know-how.

All sessions are first come-first served, so you can build the day that suits your needs most. Sessions are designed for anyone interested in finding out what evidence tells us about education, of any level, beginner or expert. We have sessions on literacy, cognitive psychology, best teaching practice, behaviour, inclusion, and many more. Come along: listen, learn, network and challenge!
