AATE/ALEA National Conference 2021

Register by Saturday 24 April and receive a bonus delegate pack!

Challenge & Change:  Contemporary Literacy & English Teaching

Special bonus! Register by 24 April to receive an exclusive Conference delegate pack

Registration includes access to the live online event as well as recorded presentations for up to 6 months after the conference. The program will feature a number of highly regarded national and international invited speakers who will challenge and inspire!

There will be engaging panel discussions, fireside chats, competitions and opportunities to engage socially throughout the event.

One of the unique aspects of an AATE/ALEA National Conference program is the inclusion of local teacher and academic voices bringing examples of classroom practice, research findings and new ideas.

Our speakers will help us to consider the changing nature of our practices; bring a critical eye to our work; and think creatively about how to build a future for literacy and English teaching that creates a better world for our students — a world in which they are active, critical and creatively literate citizens.

As a bonus, if you register for the full 3 days by 24 April you will receive a special delegate pack which will be posted to you prior to the conference.
