Since its inaugural year, this event has grown rapidly, quickly becoming a highly-regarded conference and platform for domestic and international practitioners, thought leaders and key researchers in the area of Evidence Based Teaching to meet to discuss this topic in depth.

Following the Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools, we’re seeing a heightened interest in the topic of evidence-based teaching and data-use within the classroom. The summit is going to summarise the recommendations outlined in the Gonski 2.0 Report, while simultaneously offering the information needed to begin addressing these findings in the classroom and school as a whole.

Through presentations, workshops, case-studies and panel discussions, the Evidence Based Teaching Summit will provide attendees with the knowledge and skills that they need to implement or improve the use of high-quality data collection and analysis in teaching and learning, an understanding of the ways in which EBT is currently affecting educational advancement and the future of teaching, how to build a data-driven culture and lay the groundwork to facilitate positive change as well as international perspectives and practices that Australia can learn from.

Discover what actually works in the classroom and the ways in which an entire school can develop individual learners through research based means.

The Evidence Based Teaching Summit 2018 will be the foremost forum for teachers, educational leaders and researchers to further progress the rapidly momentous concept of EBT.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Evidence based teaching strategies
  • Collecting & Interpreting data in the classroom
  • Emerging pedagogies
  • Overview of the Gonski 2.0 Report
  • International Perspectives – Institute for Effective Education in the U.K.
  • Best evidence – based practices in Australian schools
  • Translating evidence from the laboratory to the classroom
  • Emerging technologies and software in education
