Join us for the 2024 Quality Teaching in Practice conference
Following the success of QTiP23, we are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of the Quality Teaching in Practice conference for its third consecutive year.
At QTiP24: Evidence for impact, we anticipate a gathering of passionate educators and visionary leaders from various educational sectors across Australia. This conference will provide a platform for attendees to represent their diverse school communities while engaging with leading researchers and policy makers in the field of education.
QTiP24: Evidence for impact aims to ensure that your efforts contribute to meaningful, positive change for your colleagues, students, and the wider community. We look forward to seeing you there!
The 2024 Quality Teaching in Practice conference’s theme is Evidence for impact.
Evidence-based practice has become a popularised – even over-used – phrase in education in recent years. Teachers are expected to use and collect evidence in their classrooms to inform their practice. But identifying, understanding and using quality evidence can be complex.
How do you navigate this complexity to ensure what you’re doing is truly making a difference in today’s complex classrooms?
The QT Academy endeavours to be the bridge between quality research and practice, ultimately to have a positive impact for teachers, students, systems, and equity.
At the 2024 Quality Teaching in Practice conference, you will:
Hear from a series of high-profile guest speakers, as well as your three keynotes, and two thought-provoking panel discussions;
Gain insight into the latest educational research directly from the researchers gathering and analysing the data;
Learn hands-on strategies for meaningful data collection in your schools; and,
See firsthand how more than 30 teachers and school leaders are using, adapting, and evaluating Quality Teaching and QTR to make a positive difference in their classrooms across Australia.
