2025 VCE History Conference


All presenters must receive approval from their school/college leadership (where applicable) to present and attend this conference PRIOR to submitting their proposal.

Conference Date: Friday 21 February 2025
Venue: Hawthorn Arts Centre, 360 Burwood Road, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

The VCE History Conference attracts over 300 delegates for an enriching day of professional learning and collegial networking.

All presenters will be entitled to free registration so that they may attend other workshops if they wish.

Presentations will be fifty minutes’ duration.

The VCE History Conference offers delegates professional learning in content knowledge (what we teach) and content pedagogical knowledge (effective ways to teach and assess our subjects). We would be delighted to receive your workshop proposal in either or both areas.

Developing teachers’ content knowledge: these workshops 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.

Content pedagogical knowledge: these workshops provide conference delegates with VCE curriculum/Study Design-focused ideas, assessment strategies, resources, teaching and learning practices, tips and tricks and anything that may help to support them in their teaching of the following VCE subjects:

VCE Units 1 and 2 Studies

  • Modern History
  • Empires
  • Ancient Mesopotamia
  • Ancient Egypt

VCE Units 3 and 4 Studies

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

Please share this information with other colleagues who might be interested in presenting. You might also consider co-presenting with someone.

Submit your workshop proposal now!

Workshop proposals are due by Wednesday 18 September 2024.
Conference program and registrations will open by November 2024.
