March 21, 2021 @ 8:00 am - March 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Our biennial conference was previously scheduled for July 2020 but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. Luckily, we have been able to reschedule for March 2021.

We are having a wholly-online virtual conference using the Hopin platform. This will allow us to have a powerful online conference experience, including keynotes, simultaneous presentations of various topics, expos to showcase resources, participants networking and creating their own sessions (e.g. you can meet someone at the conference and organise a small-group online lunch session to chat more).

We will have 3 simultaneous sessions running. One of these streams will have a VCE focus, the other two will have a focus on Philosophy for Children and Community of Inquiry more broadly.

Tickets can be purchased here. If your school or institution is purchasing and requires an invoice, please go to the ticketing website to look at the tickets and email our Treasurer, Dan, stating the ticket types and number of tickets that you require on the invoice.

Subsidies are available to all teachers working in a regional or remote school. This funding is provided by the Department of Education and Training through the Strategic Partnerships Program. Contact the Treasurer to access.
