Keynote speakers at the three day conference also include Dr Dan White (Executive Director, CEO Sydney), Dr Ruth Powell (Director, NCLS) and Mr Michael McGrath (Director, Scottish Catholic Education Service). Other participants in the conference include senior leaders in catholic education from over 15 countries including Canada, Scotland, Mauritius and the Philippines.
“The conference theme of Paradox and Possibility is particularly relevant in the current educational climate. Today’s leaders do not always have to differentiate between the good and the bad. Instead, they are challenged to choose the better of two goods, or the lesser of two evils,” explains Professor Tony D’arbon, Emeritus Professor at ACU’s Centre for Creative and Authentic Learning.
The conference provides national and international leaders of schools and university systems, congregational leaders, academics and researchers to engage in discussion, debate and analysis of the research in the area.
