Subject to change without notice

Session choices – You can choose your sessions on the day when you register.

Sometimes all it takes is the opportunity to see successful teaching in place to spark new ideas, generate exciting conversations and revitalise workplace actions.

Collaborative Practices – Creative ideas – WAALC’s 2021 Conference – aims to bring professionals together to do all of this and share your experience.

Commencing at 9:00am and running through to about 4:00pm (we’re just tweaking the session times now).
