Australian Geography Teachers Association Conference

"AGTA 2019 The Innovative Geographer"
In an ever changing world, the study of Geography has become increasingly important. The technologies needed to collect, manage and represent our world are constantly changing. The proliferation of 'big data' and the everyday use of spatial technologies means that Geography teachers need to innovate in the classroom to ensure their students have the 21st century skills they will need to be successful beyond high school. Innovation is not only linked to technological change. Geography teachers .. continue reading must also be innovative in their subject knowledge, curriculum development and pedagogy, to ensure students are engaged, and develop critical, creative and collaborative skills both in the classroom and in the field. The conference program will provide opportunities for teachers from across Australia to share and reflect on their own innovations in the Geography classroom. The social activities will provide an ideal opportunity to network with fellow geographers from across the country.


  • Masterclasses, allowing teachers to spend a full day with experts on topics that are relevant.
  • Keynote presentations, workshops and fieldwork opportunities in a stunning location.
  • Pre and post conference tour options to discover some great geographical destinations in Queensland
