About

It is with great pleasure that Sydney hosts the 18th Annual Association for Learning Environments Australasia Conference.

The 18th Annual Learning Environments Australasia Conference theme is:

The 3 Rs in the EXPONENTIAL AGE.

We live in a world of exponential change. With this in mind, the 2018 LEA conference seeks to rethink the 3Rs for the exponential age.

Once these were readin’, ritin’ and ‘rithmetic, in the second decade of the 21st Century they are reimagined as Reflection, Relevance and Revolution.

The conference has targeted insights from leading thinkers, designers, educators, strategists and academics from across various sectors, disciplines and professional backgrounds – providing a diversity of perspectives.

Over 18 years, this annual event has grown from a small conference of 100 delegates in 2001 to a significant annual regional gathering, attracting people from across Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific, Europe and North America.

Simply put, we are a community of professionals working together to improve outcomes for students through designing environments that provide the context to engage minds, hands and hearts.

The foundation of this conference is to create a professional learning experience that seeks to embody the way learning in the 21st Century is seen.

We understand the importance of the expert input from our keynote speakers, sharing their knowledge and experience, but also understand that great learning is social, where we engage in dialogue, grapple with ideas and hear the first-hand stories of others. The Threads session of the conference provides this opportunity.

Come and join us in Sydney and let’s change the world, together!
