VALBEC 2019 Conference

Call for Presentations and Workshops

The 2019 theme - Resilience: connect, educate, empower - invites us to celebrate and explore how teachers and students achieve in education.

Join us on 17th May 2019 to explore just how we have managed to:

Connect - with colleagues, community and students to succeed in a new skill, or lay down the foundations for something new
Educate - by the development and delivery of good learning experiences for students or staff.
Empower - demonstrate how learning has enabled students or colleagues to utilise their resilience to achieve their goals

This is a fabulous moment to bring a work in progress to get feedback or to trial materials.

Proposals to be submitted by 25th March 2019. Presenters will be notifed by 10th April 2019 of their inclusion in the Conference program.

Presentation types

There are three presentation types you can select from.

1.     Workshop – Connect

(60 minutes)

These sessions offer the presenter an opportunity to explore in some depth a methodological or theoretical idea.

You should seek to engage your participants in a discussion that enables them to make connections with your experience and ideas and their own.

What new idea/s will they be able to take away to explore or follow-up?

2.     Materials in use – Educate

(60 minutes)

Presenters can bring new materials or materials in development to present to the participants for an interactive workshop where they can engage with materials with their students and curriculum in mind.

Are these materials and ideas they can take away with them and/or will you gain a breakthrough that will help you finalise or publish your new materials?

3.     Journey’s end – Empower

(60 minutes)

What is the end result you can see from a planned, designed and delivered program? How are your students talking about their journey and where are they going next? This is an opportunity for students to celebrate their journey with you and to discuss how obstacles were overcome.

Perhaps here it will be possible to see if resilience is something that is taught or discovered. What inspirations or moments of discovery did you discover together?
