The Conference will be held on Monday 30th September and Tuesday 1st October at the Hilton Hotel Adelaide with the Conference Welcome to be held on the evening of Sunday 29th September at the award winning Art Gallery of South Australia.
The 2013 Conference Program will feature an outstanding line up of international and national speakers who will be presenting on topics of relevance to teachers and schools in the 21st Century.
Our Conference "Repertoires of Practice" will provide current research and learnings on inclusion, discrimination legislation, differentiation and collaboration. The presentations at the 2013 AASE Conference will challenge participants to consider their practice in light of these initiatives.
South Australia is the home of fine wine, chocolates and the Pandas. Adelaide and surrounds is also home to some of the best restaurants and wineries in the country. Our Conference venue, the Hilton Hotel, is right in the heart of one of Adelaide's premier restaurant strips, Gouger Street, and a visit to Chinatown is a must during your visit.
The Australian Association of Special Education has proven to be a leader in providing high quality professional development for special education practitioners though the annual National Conference. 2013 in Adelaide will only continue to achieve this outstanding tradition but will strive to exceed all expectations.
We look forward to welcoming you to Adelaide in 2013.
