“By teachers, for teachers…”

University English Language Centres of Australia (UECA), and the Centre for English Teaching, University of Sydney, are proud to present the UECA PD Fest Sydney 2020.

“By teachers, for teachers” is a full day of professional development for teachers and academic managers, presented by teachers and managers working in our industry. The day will include an opening keynote speaker and a selection of 40-minute presentations or workshops. Throughout the day, participants will have the chance to connect with colleagues over lunch and at an early evening social event.

The day aims at providing professional development for teachers by teachers at UECA, NEAS  and English Australia member institutions, and is a great opportunity to share ideas and insights with colleagues from different centres and from across the industry.

The PD fest will have four streams, focussing on areas of current interest in ELICOS:

  • Assessment Practices
  • Academic Literacy
  • Well-being
  • Innovation

The sessions are 40 minutes – and suit presentations and discussion, or workshops of 30 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
