ACEL 2018 National Conference

ACEL 2018 National Conference

The 2018 educational leadership conference focuses on “Evidence and Experience” and ACEL will host world-renowned speakers who will “set the learning agenda” in experiential learning, evidence-based research, and leadership experience. Professional development is integral to teacher quality, student learning outcomes, and ongoing development of personal leadership capabilities. The ACEL National Conference presentations and panels aim to encourage attendees to trust their experience, reflect and grow as leaders, and engage with current research to inform key practices and learning environments in schools and systems.

We have invited local and international speakers who are experts in leading and learning, and they will bring to life the theme of this three-day conference in Melbourne. Their keynote presentations will be complemented by concurrent sessions, panel discussions, student performances and reflection & exploration forums.

GETTING THERE

What to wear

Conference sessions: Smart Casual
Networking Event: Cocktail


Weather

Melbourne has a moderate oceanic climate and is well known for its changeable weather conditions. This is mainly due to Melbourne’s location situated on the boundary of the very hot inland areas and the cool southern ocean. This temperature differential is most pronounced in the spring and summer months and can cause very strong cold fronts to form.


Getting Around

Most visitors base themselves in the city centre, the buzzing commercial heart of Melbourne that’s also home to museums, theatres, restaurants, bars and shops. Melbourne’s grid layout makes it an easy city to navigate, with most attractions within walking distance. Transport options include train, tram, bus or bike.


Myki Cards

Myki is Melbourne’s ticket to travel on the city’s trains, trams and buses. It’s a plastic smartcard with stored value which can be topped up and re-used again. Purchase your myki online at the myki website, premium train stations, retail outlets displaying the myki sign (including 7-Elevens), or by calling 1800 800 007 (free from a land line) in Australia.


Taxis

Cabs often wait in designated ranks that are clearly signposted at central locations like major hotels in the CBD, or busy spots such as Flinders Street Station. You can also hail a taxi in the street. If the rooftop light is illuminated, it means the taxi is available for hire – telephone bookings are also available.

Melbourne’s major taxi companies include:
13 CABS – 13 22 27
Silver Top Taxis – 13 10 08
CABiT – 13 22 22
