Senior Geography for Queensland Workshops

In a year where everything is new, it can be a challenge to juggle it all.

With the 2019 school year well underway, Senior Geography teachers are out there in classrooms teaching and implementing the new Queensland Senior Geography Syllabus. Although you have prepared, a transition of this scale needs to be revisited so you can be sure you are travelling down the right path and setting students up to achieve their highest possible ATAR.

Jacaranda are here help! Back by popular demand, we are running free one-hour Professional Development Workshops hosted by Lucy McLoughlin and Sandra Duncanson, our experienced Publishers and experts on the new Syllabus. This Professional Development Workshop will cover:

  1. Everything you need to know about the External Assessment
  2. Practical ways to prepare your students to achieve their highest possible ATAR
  3. How the resources in Jacaranda Senior Geography for Queensland series will help

Everyone is welcome, whether you’re using Jacaranda or not. Please join us for afternoon tea, networking and the chance to deepen your knowledge while contributing to your Professional Development requirements.

  • FAQs

    Here are answers to commonly asked questions about Jacaranda events.

    I have registered for an event, but can no longer attend. What should I do?
    We understand that plans change. If you can no longer attend an event, there is no need to let us know in advance. Hopefully, we will see you at a future event!

    I can’t make the start of registration. What should I do?
    Jacaranda events allow ample time for picking up your badge and networking so there is no need to arrive at the exact start. However, we may need to restrict entry once the first presenter goes on so do try to arrive at least 5 minutes before the event officially begins.

    I was unable to attend on the day. How do I get information (e.g. handouts, resources, etc.) from the event?
    Please email and we will forward any information that is available for distribution. However, please note that not all events will have materials and information that we can pass on.

    I have dietary restrictions. Who should I contact?
    Jacaranda events cater to a wide range of dietary restrictions including vegetarian and gluten-free. However, if you have specific needs, please email and we will do our best to cater to them.

    I don’t see my question. Who can I contact?
    Please email with any additional questions and/or comments and we’ll get back to you within 2-3 business days.
