National Teacher Conference

Our National Teacher Conference is back for 2022 and this time we’re welcoming you on site, as well as online. Join us at Pier 2/3 or watch live from the comfort of home for an enriching weekend of reflection on Shakespeare and the way we teach his plays.

Hear from a broad range of speakers including theatre artists, academics, practitioners and teachers as we discuss innovative approaches, new concepts, proven tips and tricks for classroom practice, and stimulating ideas about Shakespeare.

It’s an opportunity for teachers to take a step away from the front of the classroom and learn from top industry practitioners, while connecting with Australian teachers of Shakespeare from diverse backgrounds.

Teachers may register for the in-person event which includes on-site lunch and refreshments at Bell Shakespeare HQ at Pier 2/3, or join us online and watch the live-streamed event.

In-person registrations will be allocated in order of booking until sold out, and are strictly limited.

Please note, it is a requirement that all attending teachers be fully vaccinated for Covid-19, or be able to demonstrate proof of a medical exemption. On site visitors must adhere to Bell Shakespeare's Covid Safe policies and procedures, and any Public Health Orders in place at the time of the event.
