Official registration to present a workshop must be done via the Conference Registration process.

The Kids Teaching Kids Education Team will confirm your presentation place at the Conference. You will be required to submit information about your presentation by specific dates (15 June - Draft presentation plan; 24 August - Final presentation plan).

If you have any questions about what is involved in presenting a Kids Teaching Kids workshop please contact the Education Team.

The KTK Education Officers will be able to provide you with a lot of information, topic ideas, conference themes, mentors on your selected topics and support throughout the whole workshop development process.

Please make sure that every student and teacher participating in the presentation are registered as delegates for the conference.

Checkout the WORKSHOP TOOLKIT for useful information.

Please note: There are quotas at this conference for presenting and attending and this is to ensure a mix of primary and secondary schools and that schools who haven’t presented before get a chance. We offer all schools who would like to present at the Conference the opportunity to do so, this may be via poster, video, main stage presentation or a 40 minute Kids Teaching Kids workshop. We will speak with each school to discuss opportunities if registration for a workshop isn’t possible this year. We are especially interested in talking with schools who would be interested in presenting an environmental project day hands-on activity.

Accommodation

Schools (students/teachers) eligible for accommodation will be sharing in dorm-style or twin share accommodation (male or female dorms) and teachers will also be in dorm-style accommodation with other teachers. Where we can, we will organise that delegates are sharing rooms only with others from their own school, but this may not be possible. Please review the website below to gain a greater understanding of the accommodation we offer you to ensure you are happy – you are welcome to arrange your own accommodation if you find that it is not satisfactory.

Here is the link to information in regard to the accommodation that has been booked previously for delegates:
https://www.yha.com.au/hostels/vic/melbourne-hostels/melbourne-metro-hostel/group-enquiries/

Delegates staying in accommodation will need to make their own way to the Conference venue on Day 1. Maps with the safest route will be available closer to the Conference date.

Bus transport will be provided from the accommodation on Day 2 to Collingwood Children’s Farm. At the completion of the day, bus transport will return accommodation delegates to the accommodation venues.

Please note: Whilst we have organised, booked and paid for this accommodation, Kids Teaching Kids have no responsibility for you or your students at the accommodation and any additional personal costs that you may incur. Your students are your responsibility at all times.

Extra night accommodation

For schools requiring extra night’s accommodation (excluding the night before or after the Conference completion) schools are responsible for contacting the accommodation that Kids Teaching Kids have allocated them to. Your accommodation details will be stated on your Registration Pack. Alternatively please call Kids Teaching Kids or email  admin@kidsteachingkids.com.au
