Queensland Department of Education International (DEi) Conference

Leading for global futures

Where: Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

When: 18 to 19 May 2020.

Our lives are global. Rapid and constant change is bringing new demands to how we live and work, who we interact with and how we see ourselves.

In an age of globalisation, our education system must remain relevant to the economies and societies of tomorrow.

More than ever, young people need to master new types of knowledge, skills and dispositions to take advantage of a world that is becoming bigger and smaller at the same time.

The 2020 DEi Conference will showcase approaches being taken by Queensland state schools to promote global learning and engagement locally and around the world so that every student is able to thrive now and become our global leaders of the future.

The largest conference of its kind in Queensland, the program offers teachers, education leaders and staff the opportunity to:

  • Understand how global competence contributes to vibrant communities and a stronger economy
  • Share best practice in global learning and engagement in Queensland state schools
  • Explore pedagogical approaches, tools and resources to educate for global competence
  • Connect with industry, international education sector and global thought leaders
  • Learn about products and programs to extend the global reach and impact

How will the conference benefit you?

  • tap into the collective genius of fellow international education experts
  • listen to best practice by people who have real examples
  • take home practical strategies and tools
  • gain experience in an engaging, fun and rigorous environment
  • share meaningful and relevant stories
  • discover the reach and impact of DEi programs and products

Registrations will be open soon.
