Professional Learning

Why Learn with us?

The Education Knowledge Network (EKN) offers a wide range of professional learning opportunities designed to bring together educational leaders, educators and teachers to network, learn and share their wisdom and experience. Key to this learning is building the capability of educators and teachers so that all children and young people will have the best possible opportunities to benefit from their learning and to achieve their aspirations.

When you participate in professional learning through EKN you are learning from the experts. All professional learning is presented by academics who are experts in their fields, bringing you cutting edge knowledge directly from the researchers. They translate research into practice.

Participation in EKN events is highly valued for the opportunities to convert professional learning opportunities into formal post-graduate studies which can contribute to the development of your career in education.
