'The National Trust has found HTAV to be an invaluable partner. A trusted specialist provider of expertise and a brilliant advocate for the place of history in education. Over the last seven years we have contracted them as specialist advisers on curriculum. We have worked with them as partners on new technology projects. We have used their marketing services at their conferences and workshops. Victoria is well served by having such an active and imaginative peak body that serves its members and advances the pursuit of history education and scholarship. I fully endorse HTAV and their educational consultants for their level of expertise, creative solutions and positive energy they bring to education projects and programming.'
Martin Green, Cultural Engagement Manager, National Trust of Victoria
'During my appointment at Department of Premier and Cabinet, HTAV developed and delivered education resources and outreach programs to increase awareness and understanding about Australia’s military service history amongst Victorian secondary schools and the wider community. HTAV worked collaboratively and cultivated partnerships across the education and history sectors, the Shrine of Remembrance and Victoria’s veteran organisations to significantly grow participation, increasing accessibility for teachers and students across the state to be involved in SOAP. HTAV has extensive and demonstrated experience developing education resources, programs and meaningful learning experiences for students and teachers across Victoria.'
Rebecca Hicks, Project Officer, Veterans Branch, Department of Premier & Cabinet
'Over five years ago, the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council started a journey to produce a film to educate all Australians about the importance of returning Aboriginal Ancestral Remains to their Traditional Owner custodians, to rest on Country. This is a deeply distressing subject and one that requires great skill to discuss with children and adolescents. As we reach the end of our journey, the project will be released in March 2020, we could not have asked for a more sensitive education resource partner than the History Teachers’ Association of Victoria.'
Alexandra Hill, Senior Manager Policy & Operations, Office of the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council, Department of Premier and Cabinet
'HTAV worked closely with us to produce practical teacher resources to accompany our WW1 educational apps. The quality of the finished guides reflected HTAV’s excellent knowledge of the content and structure of the apps, especially as the depth of information available could be seen as daunting. The published study guides were especially useful in providing learning tasks for the classroom that were curriculum specific and enabled students to find the detail and inter-contextual relationships in the large array of interactive content available to them. HTAV’s guides continue to provide an excellent and valuable companion to the use of the apps in teaching history in a complex interactive environment.'
Sam Doust, Creative Director, ABC’s Days in Conflict series
'Jo Clyne and the team at HTAV produced an online document that exceeded expectations by our education program. It is thorough, accurate, engaging, and importantly, relevant and easy to use by primary teachers and students. The process was consultative and ongoing. We look forward to engaging HTAV again and would recommend them highly.'
Tom Ryan, Education Program Manager, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Victoria
'Our organisation has worked with HTAV on two separate projects about the true impact of war, in 2013 and 2018/9. In developing both of these teaching resources we found HTAV and in particular Dr Jo Clyne a joy to work with. There was never any doubt about the quality of the finished product as the research, writing and designing was all of a very high standard. The resources were well tailored to fit into the current curriculum and promoted by HTAV through school visits, journals and conferences.'
Dr Jenny Grounds, President, Medical Association for the Prevention of War (Victoria)
'I am happy to confirm that HTAV partnered with the Australian Living Peace Museum (ALPM) on a digital story commemorating the World War I anti-conscription campaigns for the Culture Victoria website in 2018. HTAV designed and produced a high quality education kit aligned with relevant Victorian History Curriculum historical knowledge standards to accompany the ALPM digital story. The publication was delivered on time and on budget. Dr Jo Clyne, Manager of Education and Consultancy Services was a pleasure to work with.'
Dr Frances Newell, Researcher, Australian Living Peace Museum
'As a practising secondary teacher and teacher educator, HTAV has been (and continues to be) a strong foundation for my professional learning. The conferences and resources HTAV provides for its members are second to none.'
