DATE: Thursday 14th March 2019

TIME: 5.00pm – 6.30pm

VENUE: Thebarton Senior College

COST: Free (SASPA Members), $25pp (Non Members)

Nibbles and drinks will be provided

Guest Speaker: Professor Martin Westwell (Chief Executive, SACE Board SA)

Martin will speak about the cross-sectoral work that is occurring under the auspices of the SACE Board as to how South Australia’s educators might meet the challenges of teaching and assessing (monitoring and reporting) the General Capabilities.  He will be able to take us beyond the conceptual understanding of this work to the practical considerations we will need to address in our schools and classrooms.

Q&A Panel: Following participant conversations in response to Martin’s input, a small Q&A panel will be formed (i.e., Martin plus 2 members of the SASPA Board).  The panel will listen to comments and field as many questions as possible before each panel member provides their summary observation about the challenges of undertaking this work.
