The Chinese Museum was proud to be involved the 2022 Annual HTAV Conference: History Rising held at Q Events by Metropolis in Melbourne.

Teachers experienced two conference days filled with high-quality professional learning; sharing a much-anticipated physical reunion with rewarding networking opportunities.

Our Education Manager, Tiffany Chimirri was thrilled to be invited to present at the conference where she shared her expertise and spoke about the power of object-based learning and how visiting a Museum can not only enrich the History curriculum, but also develop cultural understanding and life-long learning.

Here's what teachers had to say when asked to share the ‘best’ things about conference:

  • HTAV offers the best PD out there. You can attend the conference one day and walk into your classroom and apply practical strategies that support and enhance the learning of students the next.
  • I felt affirmed about so many of the things I am doing – and I left with the confidence to try a few new things.
  • The incredible wealth of knowledge from colleagues and peers, learning from them all, what a joy!
  • I just want to thank HTAV and all the amazing presenters who are part of our wonderful community of history teachers. It feels so empowering to be surrounded by people who educate with such passion and champion the value of our subject!

Our Museum staff, Joan and Xing Jun warmly welcomed conference delegates to learn more about The Chinese Museum at our exhibitor stand where we showcased our Education Programs.

We chatted to lots of history teachers about the diverse range of education programs that we offer, gave out hundreds of lucky red packets filled with candy, distributed flyers and invited delegates to sign up to our e-newsletter so that they can hear about all our latest news.  

On behalf of the whole team at the Chinese Museum, we would like to sincerely thank HTAV for the wonderful opportunity to participate in their 2022 annual conference and we can’t wait to be part of the conference program next year.
