The graduate teacher conferences build the capacity of graduate teachers and foster a network at the area level.
We invite graduate teachers in their first year of teaching to attend the conference. The conference program gives you an opportunity to:
- become an active part in your professional community
- build your professional practice and resilience as professional educators
- form a strong professional identity.
The program is delivered by Deakin University on behalf of the Department.
In 2020, graduate teacher conferences will be held in Term 3, with additional conferences offered in growth corridors and areas with high graduate teacher numbers.
The one-day conference will be supported by pre-conference and post-conference learning materials, hosted via CloudDeakin.
Completion of the pre-conference materials will support your engagement with the conference and provide you with an opportunity to build networks within your area.
To complete the program, you must:
- register for and attend the conference
- complete the pre and post-conference materials.
The program is free.
How to register
Registrations will open in Term 1, 2020 through Eventbrite. Multiple locations will be available. However, you're strongly encouraged to attend the conference available in the area of your school.
