Teachers are invited to a professional learning day that explores perspectives on the commemoration of war by comparing World War I with more recent conflicts involving Australian defence forces.

Join curators and educators from the Melbourne Museum, State Library Victoria and the Shrine of Remembrance to discover how you can help your students compare and contrast different aspects of Australia’s involvement in war.

This professional learning experience includes visits to the Shrine of Remembrance and the Melbourne Museum. Throughout the day, teachers can choose to investigate a range of themes such as technology, roles for women, the home front, conscription and public debate. Teachers will view exhibitions commemorating conflict and peacekeeping, explore a wide range of useful resources, take part in hands-on research experiences and create a digital narrative about their questions and discoveries.

Teachers will gain practical skills ready to use in the classroom. This program is ideal for teachers conducting any type of historical inquiry in the classroom or covering areas specifically relating to Australian involvement in conflicts and peacekeeping. Don't miss out on this unique experience.
