Excellence in Professional Practice Conference

May 21, 2015 - May 23, 2015

A conference presented by practitioners, for practitioners.

The theme of EPPC 2015 is Improving assessments of student learning. This is part of ACER’s Rolling Summit on Assessment Reform and Innovation. From 2014 to 2015 there will be a series of activities to promote new thinking about reforming assessment.

EPPC showcases the systematic ‘improvement research’ undertaken by teachers and principals in their daily practice and provides a forum for sharing knowledge and developing professional communities.

Improvement research is focused on improving the quality of teaching and learning – and thus outcomes for learners – through systematic practitioner inquiry. It often involves innovation and practical educational problem solving. As improvement researchers, practitioners design investigations of classroom practice, collect data capable of showing whether and how changes in practice are making a difference, document and reflect on improvement efforts, and share the outcomes of their investigations with colleagues. The goal is to build a robust profession-wide knowledge base about effective school and classroom practices.

Excellence in Professional Practice Conference 2015 is a highlight event in ACER’s Rolling Summit on Assessment Reform and Innovation.
