2020 Early Career Teachers Conference

Friday 28 September 2020 | Immanuel College

Call for Workshops now open!

Building Capacity, Sharing Experiences

The aim of the conference is for participants to engage in first-hand experiences that exemplify best practice in science education. Ideally our early career teachers will walk away with a deeper understanding of the science curriculum and will have broadened their skills and resources with which to engage their students in learning. The Conference will include specialised workshops for both Primary and Secondary Teachers 

You may wish to consider choosing from the categories below when determining the focus of your presentation:

The Early Years 

  • exploration of the reality of teaching experiences and the chance to address challenges that may arise in these early years
  • professional and personal wellbeing

Unpacking the curriculum

  • highlighting the essential components of the science curriculum e.g. SHE, General Capabilities, to allow teachers to develop effective and engaging lessons and teaching programs
  • teaching specific aspects of the science understanding content
  • STEM education

Inquiry-based learning 

  • developing creative strategies to integrate the science inquiry skills and critical and creative thinking into the teaching of science
  • building student capacity to construct their own learning


  • discussing how different types of assessment can be used to monitor student achievement and guide future learning opportunities
  • e-exams
