AEU/IEU CRT Conference: Education Trends

The findings of recent research and educational trends are having a big impact in the way schools deliver their content and frame their approach to education. Understanding the current trends in educational discourse will support your work across a range of schools who may implement these ideas and the research in different ways.


For this conference, keynote presenters will share their experience of working within schools implementing different pedagogical approaches and explain how CRTs working under these frameworks are expected to manage their classrooms. Participants will then have time to discuss these approaches at their table, debate their merit and the implications for their own classrooms.

Session Descriptions

What's shown to work within a school?
Lori Pereira

The research on teacher-effectiveness is dominating discussions on approaches to teaching. In her keynote Lori Pereira will share her school's journey in exploring learning intentions, success criteria and feedback. She will share snapshots of the research, the process the school went through in deciding on a teaching approach, how these reforms manifest in the classroom  and what the school asks of its CRTs to maintain consistency across the school.

What's shown to work within a classroom?
Abbey Boyer

School leadership teams will often choose a set of instructional techniques with a strong research basis to promote as their school's "instructional model". In her keynote, Abbey Boyer will share her experience of implementing one of these "instructional models" including; what challenged her, how colleagues reacted, what this instructional model looks like in the classroom, the research basis of this instructional model and the effects on her classroom.

Working in an International Baccalaureate School
Kathryn Riosa

Both the secondary and primary years program of the International Baccalaureate are increasing their footprint within Australian schools. Bringing with it a clearly articulated set of values and an obligation to engage with the wider community, the International Baccalaureate shifts the emphasis of education. In her keynote Kathryn will explain how the IB works in primary and secondary settings and drill down to its effects in the classroom.

Education Reform and Industrial Challenges

The near-constant cycle of education reform throws up many issues for teacher working conditions and overall workload. This panel discussion provides an opportunity to understand those challenges, to engage with the work that is underway to address these issues and to explore opportunities to make positive change.
