‘Thriving in changing times’: teachers as change agents (EA Conference)
The theme for this year’s English Australia Conference was ‘Thriving in changing times’, and from the opening welcome to the closing moments, it was clear that this is a sector feeling positive, confident and determined not just to survive as education continues to change, but to thrive.
The English Australia Conference is the largest gathering of teachers, teacher trainers, administrators, student support staff, marketers, academic managers, principals, CEOs, service providers, sector sponsors and others involved in the delivery of English language intensive courses to overseas students (ELICOS) in Australia.
The conference program was packed with inspiring sessions covering a broad range of perspectives from classroom innovations, social media and technology to creativity, mental health and the broader student experience. Two Navitas attendees at this year’s conference share a handful of takeaways from just a few of those sessions below.
