Reimagining the curriculum:
achieving educational goals through practice

2020 Australian Curriculum Symposium 

What do the Education Goals for Young Australians, as set out in the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration – December 2019, mean for curriculum? How do excellence and equity work together in schools? How do we ensure all young Australians become confident and creative individuals, successful lifelong learners, and active and informed members of the community?

The symposium aims to increase knowledge and understanding around these goals, it will explore what they mean, and the impact they will have for schools, teachers and leaders of curriculum.

The Symposium will explore the following questions:

  • How do we ensure we achieve our educational goals? Where have they come from?

  • What do these goals actually mean in the context of curriculum? What are the connections?

  • How do I transfer these goals into my context? What do these goals mean for schools and teachers?

Attending the Symposium will enable delegates to:

  • Understand the breadth of scholarship that can inform teaching practice by examining evidence informed theory and practice.

  • Connect curriculum goals, policy and ideas to classroom practice.

  • Broaden your professional experience by creating a suite of professional tools.

  • Networking – building relationships and learning from each other through exposure to different practices to achieve the Education Goals for Young Australians.


Who should attend the Symposium?

All educators: Teachers, curriculum leaders, school leaders, teacher educators, pre-service teachers and curriculum developers.


It is with sincere regret that we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Curriculum Symposium due to the circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the inevitable limitations to travel for delegates, presenters and administrators.

We would like to advise that the intended Symposium program will form part of a larger more extensive program for ACSA’s Australian Curriculum Conference in 2021 in Queensland. We hope to see you there! For further updates subscribe to our eNews.

We greatly appreciate your understanding.
