Partnership opportunities across the curriculum
In association with ACSV and REDI
The 2023 Student Voice Symposium will focus on “partnership opportunities”, across two focus areas: curriculum and pedagogy. This symposium will take on a different format to previous years, being spread across three days, over three weeks. Each webinar session will hear from a different expert in the field, followed by a Q&A session. Sessions 1 and 2 will take place after school hours, to encourage greater participation from those who are busy during school hours. The third session will take place in the morning, to allow participation from our international experts and for those who aren’t available for the first two sessions.
Session 1: What Student Voice looks like in educational settings
Wednesday 15th February 2023, closed
The first session will centre around history and impact. Feature a wide range of perspectives, from current student: Daniel Vo, 2022 graduates: Jade Frame and Linh Dang, and from a long-term expert: Roger Holdsworth. This panel discussion will unpack key milestones in the ‘history of student voice’ before turning to answer questions around the current perspectives within Australian schools.
Session 2: Provocations
Thursday 23rd February 2023, closed
The second session will speak to provocations within the student voice sector. This session will challenge the current operating model and the status quo, questioning how the education system can be improved, how it can grow for both the benefits of students and other stakeholders. This session will hear from a Master Teacher: Adam Brodie-McKenzie, Academics: Marie Brennan and Lew Zipin, and a recent graduate: Ahelee Rahman.
Session 3: Research Frameworks
Friday 3rd March 2023, 10.30 - 11.15am AEDT
The final session of this symposium will hear from Associate Professor Marc Brasof, an expert in student voice and civics education in the United States. Dr Brasof’s research focuses on democracy in schools through an intersection of student voice, project-based learning, and school-community partnerships. He has used his experience and research to develop a new framework for student voice, which he has published in his latest edited book: Student Voice Research: Theory, Methods, and Innovations from the Field.
