Present for HTAV

CALL FOR PAPERS – VCE UNITS 1 & 3 HISTORY CONFERENCE and EXAMINATION REPORTS

The History Teachers’ Association of Victoria (HTAV) is inviting experienced teachers of VCE History, historians and history education academics to share their knowledge with teachers of VCE History at our first main conference for 2019.

Event Details:
VCE Units 1 & 3 History Conference and Examination Reports
When: Friday 22 February 2019
Where: CQ Functions, 113 Queen Street, Melbourne (to be confirmed)

This conference attracts over 250 delegates for an enriching day of professional learning and collegial networking. Be part of the warmth and generosity that happens when history teachers gather en masse.

The conference will offer delegates professional learning in two areas. You may submit a proposal to present in either or both areas for consideration.

  1. Developing Teachers' Content Knowledge
    These workshops will provide conference delegates with the opportunity to enhance their own knowledge of history and further ignite their passion for their chosen history subject. These workshops are not necessarily focussed on classroom ideas but must relate directly to history that is covered in the VCE curriculum. Presenters are being sought for workshops that will cover:


VCE Unit 1 Studies -

  • Twentieth Century History
  • Global Empires
  • Ancient Mesopotamia

VCE Unit 3 Studies -

  • Ancient History – Egypt, Greece, Rome
  • Australian History
  • Revolutions: America, China, France, Russia

  1. Ideas for use in the Classroom
    These workshops will provide conference delegates with VCE curriculum/Study Design focussed ideas, assessment strategies, resource ideas, teaching and learning practices, tips and tricks and anything that may help to support them in their teaching of the following VCE subjects:
  • VCE Unit 1: Twentieth Century History
  • VCE Unit 1: Global Empires
  • VCE Unit 1: Ancient Mesopotamia
  • VCE Unit 3: Australian History
  • VCE Unit 3: Ancient History – Egypt, Greece, Rome
  • VCE Unit 3: Revolutions – America, China, France, Russia
