2021 Events

As we all know, Covid put pay to many activities this year. The Committee met in early December and has identified our activities for Semester 1:

BEHIND THE LINES AND MOAD PL, 18th February 2021 (Week 3) – Hosted by MoAD

The main theme for this PD will be the new Behind the Lines exhibition and includes a discussion with the Cartoonist of the Year – Cathy Wilcox. MoAD will also showcase its new online resources and other exhibitions that teachers may find helpful in their practice.

NATIONAL HISTORY CHALLENGE LAUNCH, 25th February 2021 (Week 4) – Venue TBC early next year
Our annual launch for the National History Challenge where teachers and local cultural institutions meet.

Presented by Dr Sofia Samper Carro (ANU)

A more detailed program is under development, and this workshop will be as interactive as possible. The content will deal with prehistoric (not ‘classical’) societies. Sofia is generously presenting this workshop with the aim of sharing skills, knowledge and teachable content for Social Sciences/History teachers in the ACT.
