PLACE: University of Western Sydney, Parramatta South Campus

As the Australian Research Council Linkage Project Rethinking Multiculturalism/ Reassessing Multicultural Education draws to a close, we will be hosting Rethinking Multicultural Education: Research, Policy, Practice, a two-day conference on 27-28 November that showcases the project’s findings, and engages with key stakeholders in this area.

Day 1 is directed to academics and those working in policy in this area. With links to the three project reports, it will involve three themed sessions:

  • Multicultural and ESL education: issues around teacher education and professional learning
  • Intercultural understanding and anti-racism
  • Rethinking multiculturalism and multicultural education: knowledge translation and engaged research

Academics, policy-makers, practitioners and community representatives will be asked to respond to the findings and to relate these to broader issues associated with these themes.

Day 2  will have a practitioner focus with professional learning sessions open to educational directors, principals and teachers in NSW Department of Education and Community schools across NSW. You are welcome to attend Day 1 and/or Day 2. Both days are BOSTES accredited for NSW DEC teachers. Registration is free though places are strictly limited.

We ask if you could please circulate this invitation to other interested academics and trainee teachers.
