The National Catholic Education Commission is hosting a virtual symposium, Faith in the Future, on Friday 30 October 2020 11:30am-2:30pm (AEDT).
With the 2020 National Catholic Education Conference now postponed until 4-7 September 2022, the virtual symposium offers an opportunity for the Catholic educational community to gather and participate in professional learning and engagement.
The program will feature two keynote speakers:
Professor John Haldane – Professor of Philosophy of Education at Australian Catholic University who will explore Faith in the Future: the challenges and opportunities for Catholic education.
The Minister for Education Dan Tehan and Shadow Minister for Education and Training Tanya Plibersek will speak at the symposium, and there will be a fun and informative quiz-style panel on the 200-year history of Catholic education.
A panel discussion comprising academics and school leaders/staff will be moderated by Sydney Morning Herald Education Editor Jordan Baker, and will focus on a range of topics affecting Catholic education today including faith formation and mission, student/staff wellbeing, responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and community/parent engagement.
The free event will also be recorded and made available to school communities.
