Professional Development Conferences

Perth – Sydney – Melbourne 2019

A rare opportunity to work with English philosopher, Stephen Law.

In these practical workshops, Stephen will be sharing his ideas on teaching Critical Thinking in the secondary curriculum.

A valuable workshop for Religious Studies, Philosophy and Theory of Knowledge teachers and anyone looking for opportunities to teach Critical Thinking in their subject area.

Adelaide – Melbourne – Brisbane – Hobart

From vision to classroom reality, Dylan and Jeremy will share a wide-ranging and versatile unit for the middle school classroom (Years 7-10).

This unit models a ‘personal search’ approach to Religious and Values Education (RaVE) and shows how RaVE can be at the centre of the secondary curriculum as a lively, relevant, inter-disciplinary subject that promotes critical thinking skills and enhances personal development.

The course will be a valuable opportunity for RaVE and Philosophy teachers, as well as pastoral leaders responsible for well-being programs.
