Registrations are open for the National Catholic Education Commission’s Faith in the Future Virtual Symposium, to be held Friday, October 30.
“With the 2020 National Catholic Education Conference postponed until 4-7 September 2022, the virtual symposium offers an opportunity for the Catholic educational community to gather and participate in professional learning and engagement,” said National Catholic Education executive director Jacinta Collins.
The program will feature two keynote speakers:
- Dr Carol Campbell, Associate professor of Leadership and Educational Change at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, who will focus on school improvement in a COVID world.
- Professor John Haldane, Professor of Philosophy of Education at Australian Catholic University, who will explore Faith in the Future: the challenges and opportunities for Catholic education.
Education Minister Dan Tehan and Shadow Minister for Education and Training Tanya Plibersek will also speak at the symposium.
Among the expected highlights will be a fun and informative “Bicentennial Games” on the 200-year history of Catholic education and a panel discussion, moderated by Geraldine Doogue, on school improvement, student wellbeing, faith formation and parent engagement.
This is a free ticketed event for educators and leaders in Catholic schools, education offices and universities. The symposium will be recorded and made available to school communities.
