Policy experts and academics have held a wide-ranging discussion on Australian schooling policy this week.

Australian schooling policy has undergone massive change over the past decade, with major national reforms in curriculum, assessment, teaching standards and funding.

This new era of reform is not only transforming schools, but is also changing relationships between federal, state and territory governments in policy development and enactment.

This week, the University of Melbourne held a Q&A style forum bringing together prominent policy makers and field-leading academics to explore and debate the evolving landscape of schooling policy, including:

  • The changing role of the federal government
  • New collaborative networks between state and territory governments
  • The impact of new organisations like ACARA and AITSL
  • The influence of global policy actors and organisations, and
  • Ways of improving national policy processes.
