Welcome to Doing School Differently 2022!

After the success of the 2016 and 2018 Doing School Differently conferences we are back in 2022 to give you another opportunity to advance the national conversation on practice and research in flexible and inclusive education.

Doing School Differently is the pre-eminent Australian conference for all educators, youth workers, researchers, policy makers and young people who are committed to developing and sustaining successful educational opportunities and pathways for young people who have experienced barriers to education.

For AAFIE, the health and wellbeing of our community and delegates is a priority; and we know many of you work at the coalface supporting a vulnerable group of young people nation-wide. 

Join us in Adelaide on 30 June - 01 July 2022 to add your voice to the conversation. Registrations NOW Open!

DSD 2022 is hosted by AAFIE: the Australian Association for Flexible and Inclusive Education. AAFIE was launched in July 2019, following strong support for this kind of peak body at DSD 16 and DSD 18. Find out more (and perhaps even become a member) by clicking here.
