Post-Gonski 2.0: Supporting evidence-based teaching practice in the classroom

Tuesday 3 July

Now is the time for public discussion about how government policies can better support schools and teachers in the classroom. David Gonski has handed down his new report (‘Gonski 2.0’) outlining a broad vision for schooling in Australia. It’s a high-level national statement, and arguably state governments have tried to achieve much of it for some time. So why is evidence-based teaching so hard to achieve at scale?

At this Policy Pitch event, join School Education Fellow, Julie Sonnemann and a panel of experts to discuss the difficulties of achieving evidence-based teaching at scale and how to implement critical reforms, such as tailored teaching and new specialist teacher career pathways.

Speakers

Katherine Henderson is the Director of the University of Melbourne Network of Schools (UMNOS)

Michaela Epstein is the President of the Mathematical Association of Victorias.

Julie Sonnemann is the School Education Fellow at Grattan Institute.

Moderator

Megan French is the Marketing Manager for Grattan and the producer and host of the Grattan Institute podcast. .
