Building Equity – Targeted Teaching – Interntional Collaboration

QELi is delighted to be welcoming Doug Fisher, Professor of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University and a teacher leader at Health Sciences High and Middle College, to Brisbane as keynote speaker for the 2019 QELi Conference.

The Report from the Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools (Gonski 2.0) released in March 2018, prescribed all Australian students should receive a world-class school education, tailored to individual learning needs, and relevant to a fast changing world. Students should be challenged and supported to progress and excel in learning in every year of school, appropriate to each student’s starting point and capabilities.

What are we doing to make a difference for all students?

Join Doug Fisher, Professor of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University and a teacher leader at Health Sciences High and Middle College, for two days of in-depth thought leadership examining building equity in schools, targeted teaching and intentional collaboration. Doug will be joined by educators from across Queensland who will share examples of professional practice in action through interactive workshop sessions.
