From the centre to the periphery : thinking historically with ACT educational history
Report : E5 - Published report, presentation or submission
This work was developed as the Faculty of Education, Science, Technology & Mathematics as part of the University of Canberra’s contribution to the Centenary of Canberra. It focuses upon the history of education in what became the ACT. Rather than focus on the entire century I have decided to direct my attention to two key themes & periods that set the ACT apart: The formation and early years of the school of teacher education, and the formation of the ACT School Authority. I have also aimed to deploy history with the explicit intent of learning from the past rather than recording it – an approach I, and my colleague Simon Leonard, call ‘History for Education’.
