Conference Timetable

In 2021 this biennial conference will be providing evidence-based practice to assist classroom teachers, home tutors and support/inclusion personnel in supporting students who experience difficulties with learning. We are calling for submissions for research papers or practical workshops on all aspects of meeting the learning needs of students in a variety of settings. This includes (but is not limited to) effective teaching practices and assessment in reading, writing, spelling, mathematics and other learning areas at both primary and secondary levels of schooling as well as the use of technology, student engagement, whole school approaches, working collaboratively with colleagues, and models of inclusion in a mainstream classroom.
