For the first time, the National Education Summit will hold a Brisbane event in 2019, bringing a comprehensive professional development program to local educators over two days Friday 31 May – Saturday 1 June at the Brisbane Convention Centre.

With the flagship summit continuing in Melbourne next August, the Brisbane event is a new addition to the long running summit and comes in response to feedback from the education sector for a Queensland event.

“As the education landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace, there is no denying the importance of professional development in the sector. With the National Education Summit set to launch in Brisbane in May 2019, educators in the region can look forward to a full two-day program of innovative, informative and inspiring PD opportunities,” said International Exhibition and Conference Group Creative Director, Margo Metcalf.

Academics and leading educators will present a range of concurrent sessions and workshop events across four conferences at the Summit: Special Needs Symposium, Digital Classroom Conference, Creativity and Innovation in Learning Conference, and the Capacity Building School Libraries Conference.

Highlights include the Special Needs Symposium Creativity and Innovation in Learning Conference, Teacher Librarian Conference and the Exhibition with Free Seminars throughout the two days, teachers can attend a range of free seminars scheduled on the Open Stage within the trade exhibition.
