With approximately 1,600 delegates participating in this conference, it is extremely important workshops and presentations run smoothly, keep to time, and live up to expectations. Please make sure your content is applicable across all levels (early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary), or that you clearly state the target level at the outset, and that your language is inclusive. We recommend you check booked delegates prior to your session and pitch accordingly.
