These are certainly interesting and challenging times for education, both in Australia and globally. As such, it is essential that we reflect on potential future opportunities where we, as educators, can learn from our remote teaching practice, to improve student learning, wellbeing and engagement outcomes for our students.

With the distinctive rise of e- learning and teaching, whether undertaken remotely or on digital platforms for our students, it is inevitable and appropriate that we ponder future technology, techniques and approaches with the reflection of professional lessons achieved so far.

Join us as our panel discusses how educators are creating possibilities to do things differently to provide a gateway to education for our students. These educational leaders will share experiences learned with remote and online learning, particularly in the Kindergarten to Year 12 arena.
