KEY NOTE SPEAKERS

Professor Geoff Masters AO, Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), will be sharing his thinking on the future of assessment at school, system and global levels. In his words, “The way that I think about assessment is that it’s a much more professional activity – in professional work … people go to the trouble of understanding what they’re dealing with: What’s the situation here? What’s the problem? And, how do I use my professional knowledge to address the problem in front of me? And that’s the way that I think about teaching. It’s not just a matter of delivering some pre-specified, one-size-fits-all curriculum, it’s a much more difficult job than that. It’s a matter of working to understand where individuals are in their learning - and that can be done at different degrees of diagnostic detail”.
 
Associate Professor Dianne Vella-Brodrick (PhD), Deputy Director (Research), Centre for Positive Psychology Chair of Ethics, Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Co-Editor-in-Chief Psychology of Well-Being, and adjunct in the School of Psychology and Psychiatry at Monash University. She is also the Director of the Master of Applied Positive Psychology program which is part of the Centre for Positive Psychology at the University of Melbourne. Dianne Vella-Brodrick and her researchers have been investigating wellbeing approaches and positive psychotherapy methods in enhancing wellbeing for young people at the Reach Foundation and Geelong Grammar School. The findings of this research gives insight into being able to tailor positive psychology interventions to create more optimal outcomes for specific individual needs and group and institution needs.
 
Isabel and Melati Wijsen, two students from Green School Bali, are acutely aware of the role that young people can play in shaping our world. Isabel and Melati will share their experiences and remarkable success in the Bye, Bye Plastic Bags campaign. These two remarkable young women have transformed the thinking of hundreds of thousands of people and are in the process of spreading the word beyond Indonesia. Much in demand as charismatic and engaging presenters, Isabel and Melati have in recent months addressed conferences in the USA and India and are an inspiration to all young people who want to change the world for the better.
