These are certainly interesting and challenging times for both Australia and Global Education, as we reflect on future educational opportunities from which we can learn, as COVID19 has been the greatest disruption to education in decades. It is inevitable and appropriate, that we do think about the future to some degree regarding the lessons achieved so far, with the distinctive rise of elearning and teaching, whether undertaken remotely or on digital platforms for our students. Join us to welcome an Expert Panel from a variety of backgrounds, to discuss how educators are creating possibilities to do things differently to provide a gateway to education for our students. The panel will share new modes of instruction they have experienced from their perspective, during COVID-19, that have previously been largely untapped, particularly in the Kindergarten to Year 12 arena.

What is "STEM"?  (And why is it so important?) 

Venue: Online 

Time: 3pm- 4:30pm

Cost: Free

Learning with STEM: What the WORLD Must be Like:
“STEM” is the latest buzzword – everyone is talking about how we need more of it!  But do we? And if so, exactly what do we need more of?  We could surely use more scientists and engineers, but there is a much more urgent need: to raise the level of ‘scientific literacy’ in the wider community, but also in the student cohort. Not everyone needs to be a scientist, but in our increasingly technological age, everyone needs to understand what is, and is not, “scientific”.
In this introductory lecture, Tibor argues that this is what “Learning with STEM” is about, and that it is important! Tibor will expand on the Scientific Method, and explore what Science can and cannot tell us about the physical world.

Explore how the FamilyBookform online tool facilitates the framework of ‘Universal Design Learning’ to save you time in delivering personalised and differentiated Project Based learning to enrich curriculum-aligned lessons and assessments. 
This interactive webinar will guide teachers through assigning Communication Projects to a class or Year group. See how students automatically create published books in 3 steps:

  1. Collect – Students work independently, following a template page to interview others using question prompts, speech-to-text and contributions, to automatically collect original content into a digital format.

  2. Edit – Students share their audio stories and text in class for lesson enrichment, collaborative editing and peer bonding.

  3. Present – Students are proud to present their polished end book product to their family and community. 

Student’s books can be graded, included in portfolios, gifted or sold for School fundraising.

A very warm invitation is extended to all Honorary Fellows and Life Members of the Guild and their partners, to attend the Teachers’ Guild of New South Wales Fellows Dinner. During the evening, there will be a presentation by our distinguished speaker Cheryl Lacey. The Guild will also honour Fellowships of the Guild to some very worthy colleagues on the evening.

Schools are in the business of providing a service – education – and while every school is led by a Principal, not all are principled in the same manner. While reports indicate that Principals and schools are coming under increased pressure, what is not reported are the opportunities Principals have to ensure a world leading education is offered. In this presentation, Cheryl challenges her audience to believe in the power of a principled Principal and provides a balanced pathway for effecting immediate change. It’s optimistic, it’s powerful and above all – possible.


Cheryl Lacey is a mum, educationist, speaker and author, and highly respected in her approach to agitating for change in Australian education. In Cheryl’s latest book, Marching Schools Forward, she challenges some of the basic concepts that underpin education and makes no apology for what are, sometimes, controversial observations. Cheryl has worked in all sectors of education from early-childhood to tertiary and in independent, denominational and government schools. Cheryl is recognised internationally for her work and continues in her quest for a world-class education for all Australians

Learning with STEM: What the WORLD Must be Like:  
Science used to be ‘Natural Philosophy’ until the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries saw a parting of ways. Science became increasingly empirical – performing experiments and recording findings – while Philosophy remained contemplative – pondering the principles of logic, knowledge, ethics and politics, and struggling to make sense of the human condition. Today, both disciplines can claim significant achievements for both new technologies and improved understanding, but they also trouble each other – and the result is unfortunate. 
The three-part workshop will examine this divide, exploring the nature of “understanding” and how we might go about answering the question even Einstein famously asked, “What is ‘reality’?
