The Schools & Education Systems Special Interest Group is proud to host: The National Evidence Institute – creating the most value for schools and systems
Registrations to the venues have closed but feel free to join by zoom using the details below.
Please join us at 2pm on Thursday 25 July for this informative and interactive session focusing on the federal government’s plan to establish a National Evidence Institute (NEI). While the overarching focus and intent of the NEI has generally received support from Education Ministers, there are still a number of key elements and options under consideration. As consultations move forward and begin to include smaller stakeholders, this is a timely opportunity for members of this SIG to collaborate and discuss how a future NEI would value add to our goal of connecting researchers with schools & systems.
For this multi-location event, we will be hearing from three experts on use of evidence in schools/systems to inform a broader Q&A discussion. Three short presentations of 20 minutes will then open up to those in attendance to debate and discuss.
When: Thursday 25 July, 2pm to 4pm
- Sydney – Room 1:04, 105 Phillip Street Parramatta NSW
- Melbourne – Room 121, Level 1, Learning and Teaching Building, Monash University, 19 Ancora Imparo Way, Clayton
