One keynote not to be missed is Laureate Professor John Hattie. His landmark book Visible Learning is lauded as "teaching's Holy Grail".
In his Transformance keynote, Professor Hattie will review the research on fitness-for-purpose learning spaces and explore how they can transform teaching and student engagement.
From former farm paddocks to heritage listings, Tours 2, 8, 14, 15 and 19 showcase the new schools embracing innovative design throughout Perth's growth corridors.
See how community, accessibility, adaptability and sustainability unfold as key aspects of several school designs. Explore the fruition of an entire masterplan at Byford Secondary College. Witness a senior and primary school that are successful outcomes of the first WA Public Private Partnership.
Or see the architectural uniqueness of one of the largest rammed earth constructions in Australia at Mother Teresa Catholic College.
