HISTORY TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Well done!
to all the P-12 teachers, educators, school and community partners and leaders,
even the 4 students (yes, that’s right – students attended the full conference sharing their voices, ideas and visions for Australia!),
who attended and made the HTAA National Conference People, Power and Perspectives
2-4 October 2018 in CANBERRA
Educational, inspiring and wonderful!
The diversity of local, national, regional and international speakers, sharing their visions for developing the teaching of History while also providing incredibly useful resources, units of work, exhibitions and connections
was inspiring and empowering!
Thank you again to our fantastic sponsors who assisted in a range of ways, to those that made the journey across the country (and globe!), to everyone who came, and especially to the organising committee and volunteers – your work, energy and passion was appreciated!
