National Science of Learning Summit to be held in Hobart
A collaboration between Catholic Education Tasmania and Catholic Education Canberra and Goulburn has resulted in the hosting of a national teaching and learning summit in Hobart next month.
The Teaching Matters Science of Learning National Summit is a professional multi-day learning event where educators from across Australia will convene to learn about the science of learning and high impact teaching practices, and how to develop / implement a knowledge-rich curriculum.
Catholic Education Tasmania Executive Director Dr Gerard Gaskin said the national summit will help educators improve their teaching, and the learning outcomes of their students, via the provision of international networking and shared thinking opportunities.
“The science of learning invites the teacher into a personal exchange with every student in their class – supported by a quality curriculum and clear principles of effective instruction.
“It is already proving successful in drastically improving student achievement. We can’t wait to share this research with other educators across the country at the Teaching Matters Summit,” said Dr Gaskin.
The Summit will be held at Wrest Point Convention Centre in Sandy Bay on 2 – 4 of April. It will feature keynote presentations from highly credible experts in the science of learning, Q&A sessions with panellists and educational experts, and networking opportunities for attendees.
Experts presenting at the Teaching Matters: Science of Learning National Summit include:
- Professor Pamela Snow, Professor for the School of Education at La Trobe University
- Dr Lorraine Hammond, Associate Professor for the School of Education at Edith Cowan University
- Noel Pearson, Founder of Good to Great Schools Australia and Cape York Partnership
- Reid Smith, Founder and Co-CEO of Ochre, teacher at Ballarat Clarendon College and a member of LaTrobe University’s Science of Language and Reading (SOLAR) Lab.
