Canberra Resources Immersion Program

January 14, 2024 - January 17, 2024

RHSV is again partnering with the National Capital Educational Tourism Project and leading Canberra cultural institutions to offer the unique Canberra Resources Immersion Program for present and past VCE Australian History teachers.

Participants pay a highly-subsidised fee of $875 which includes return flights, coach transfers in Canberra, accommodation, breakfasts, lunches and a Welcome Dinner.

Education staff, historians and curators of the Australian War Memorial, Museum of Australian Democracy, National Archives of Australia, National Library of Australia and National Museum of Australia are providing half-day programs and resources tailored to the current VCE Study Design. They will showcase objects and stories unique to their collections that can be used in addition to those in recommended textbooks.

Previous teachers of VCE Australian History are invited to informally share their historical knowledge, the resources they used, their skills and any ‘practical tips’ with Victoria’s current teachers, including some who will be teaching it for the first time in 2024. Victoria is the only jurisdiction offering a dedicated Australian History course at the most senior level of secondary schooling, and this program’s partners are keen to see it not only survive, but thrive.

If interested in attending or you have any questions, email Rosalie Triolo: rosalie.triolo@monash.edu 

Expressions of interest must close on Friday 24 November, and payments will be due soon after.

We hope to see you in January, 2024.
