Many cultural organisations seek to provide purposeful and relevant educational materials for schools.

This program will look at best practice as defined by experts and practitioners alike.

  • What content and modes of delivery are most sought after by schools?
  • How can cultural organisations make their resources accessible to school audiences?
  • How have other institutions gone about delivering powerful resources?

Guest speakers include Annabel Astbury from ABC Education and Rachel Crellin from Department of Education and Training FUSE who will address: What’s hot and what’s not.

  • Practicing classroom teachers will explain what resources they like and how they find them.
  • Cultural organisations will present case studies about resources that have worked for them.
