The IEU’s AGM on 17 October inspired lively debate on a wide range of topics.
Much of the discussion centred on the future of education.
What are the implications of artificial intelligence being used to mark student papers? What new direction does BOSTES plan to take the HSC in? What ATAR requirements will be set for prospective student teachers, and what will their employment prospects look like?
