18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - The Future of Schooling Policy : A free Q&A style forum discussing the evolving landscape of schooling policy in WA. Website | More Information
Over the past decade, the Australian education system has undergone seismic shifts with major national reforms in areas including curriculum, assessment, teaching, reporting, funding and school governance.

Reform is strongly influenced by emerging evidence about how to improve schools, advances in digital learning technologies, and evolving ideas about what young people require to participate in changing global societies and economies.

Despite major innovations and disruptions, persistent problems continue, including inequality, underachievement in literacy and numeracy, and worrying numbers of young people failing to complete Year 12.

The UWA Public Policy Institute are pleased to invite you to a free public lecture, where we will explore major issues such as:

- The role and impact of NAPLAN testing; - How well the curriculum equips young people for rapidly changing global contexts; - The contested role of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR); - How to tackle perennial issues of inequality in schools; - How parents can better engage in school-based decision making; and - The hopes and challenges of emerging digital learning technologies.

The discussion will be moderated by The Honourable Colin Barnett MLA, former Premier of Western Australia.
