The theme is Shifting the literacy ParadigmAustralian educators as agents for change. It will focus on: professional learning; evidence based teaching; early years teaching; learning differences; ELAD and THRASS as a whole-school model. The meeting is open to teachers, principals, students, parents and support staff and will feature more than 20 speakers from the Australian educational sector presenting on a range of topics.

THRASS CEO Denyse Ritchie said: "I attend many education conferences in Australia, where the perceived draw cards are academics or education researchers from other countries.

"The THRASS Conference is a celebration of grassroots educators in Australia and will showcase the journeys and successes of everyday Australian teachers, principals and support staff.

"Through case studies and practical demonstrations, delegates will explore many of the political and ideological issues that currently surround literacy teaching in Australia and provide a platform for critical discussion with likeminded educators."

Ticket price is $395 gst incl.
