This conference is primarily aimed at practising history teachers in NSW. It will bring together teachers, historians and education academics to explore the question:

What kind of history do we need in the 2020s?

Sessions will include a keynote address by the celebrated Australian historian Professor Geoffrey Blainey, and an address by Associate Professor Anna Clark (historian of secondary history education and author of the recently published Making Australian History, 2022).

Registrants will benefit from hearing a variety of perspectives on history and the school curriculum. This will assist teachers as they plan and refine their approaches to Stages 4-6 History, design assessment tasks and planfor the upcoming round of discussions surrounding the NSW Curriculum review.
