The AIS Educational Leaders Conference 2019 

Reimagining Learning - Schools Investing in a Confident Future!


What type of curriculum is needed for now and into the future? What should be the underpinning philosophies? What could it look like? Most importantly, what possibilities exist for schools to enliven the curriculum through contemporary, innovative and contextually ideal teaching, learning and assessment practices? 

The AIS Educational Leaders Conference will explore curriculum re-design, impacts for teaching, learning and assessment and consider how schools can most effectively prepare their students for multiple educational pathways and life opportunities in a rapidly changing world.
