    An exciting opportunity  for your students to get a taste of university. A half day experience with engaging activities presented by lecturers from the University of Queensland  in both physical and human geography.

    Secondary students from years 10-12 will also have the opportunity to meet some young geographers currently studying at UQ and working in a range of Geographic industries.

    The student day is presented by GTAQ and University of Queensland School of The Environment, there is no charge for students.

    The day includes morning tea and lunch, and conference bag and T shirt.  

    Students do not have to be accompanied by a teacher as we will have GTAQ teachers at the event. However, teachers who want to accompany their students are very welcome, and should you want to register for a half day at the GTAQ Conference (held on the same day at the same venue) you have the option of a half-day registration at $100.

    In partnership with the University of Queensland School of the Environment we are excited to provide this opportunity for students.

    Possible futures: Learning, teaching and assessment in the age of AI

    The emergence of generative artificial intelligence raised both concerns and substantial hype in education. Now, well over a year since the emergence of ChatGPT in late 2022, much more is understood about both the opportunities and challenges AI brings to learning, teaching and assessment. Drawing on emerging research and practice, this session will focus on what may lie ahead for education in the age of AI. There is a lot of uncertainty about the ongoing development of AI technologies. This uncertainty provides clues about what educational systems and practice need to emphasise now and into the future as machines become more capable (or not).
