2024 ACMI x VATE Ideas Lab: Middle Years Conference

In collaboration with ACMI, the 2024 VATE Ideas Lab: Middle Years Conference aims to bring together educators from all stages of their English teaching career to converge at ACMI Federation Square and share ways to encourage meaningful and engaging learning experiences in the middle years.

Can’t make it in-person but don’t want to miss out? A selection of workshops and the opening keynote will be live streamed to make it easier to attend this event.
