Griffith to host 2021 Creating Futures Summit

Griffith University’s School of Education and Professional Studies will again host the annual Creating Futures Summit, shining a spotlight on issues relating to the teaching profession. 

The free immersive virtual experience will focus on Quality Teaching of Reading in the Early Years, with a focal point on the place of phonics in a balanced approach to the teaching of reading.

The event will be much more than a conference or a talk fest – it is where informed and creative educators and educational stakeholders come together to shape-shift the work in initial teacher education and support beginner teacher experiences, school leadership initiatives and key stakeholder policy decisions. After the summit, we then collectively enact the way forward. 

A virtual community of hundreds of participants, inclusive of a range of stakeholders, such as teaching academics from higher education institutions, researchers, school leaders and teachers from all schooling sectors, educators from early childhood education contexts, preservice teachers, representatives from peak educational associations, and community representatives will be in attendance. 

Register now to join our team of guest speakers for short TEDx style contributions, interactive conversations, inspiring case studies and workshops on Tuesday 30 March 2021.
