Have your say in the State of History education survey!

5 Jun 24

In the course of conversations with people from Victorian education authorities, HTAV Board members and staff are often asked questions we can’t answer. Questions which the education authorities’ staff can’t answer either, because the data is not collected.

Questions like:

HTAV can share anecdotes – de-identified accounts from individual HTAV members – with people in the Department of Education or the VCAA, but we can’t talk about trend data or the scale of an issue. It would inform and enhance our advocacy if we could.

With this in mind, I would like to encourage you – urge you – to please respond to HTAV’s ‘State of History Education Survey’. It will take you 15-20 minutes to complete, which I know is a lot to ask, but a strong response rate will mean the HTAV community has captured some of this data for the first time in Victoria.

The more responses we get, the more confident we can all be about the findings. Of course, we will share the findings of the survey with HTAV members.

Please pass the link on to everyone you know who is teaching History at a Victorian school in 2024.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work. The HTAV Office is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. These lands were never ceded. We pay our respect to their ancestors and Elders, past and present.

Please note: Members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities should be aware that the HTAV website may include images or names of people now deceased.
