Christians in Teaching Conference
The Christians in Teaching Conference is a day-long conference which promotes teaching as a profession, and facilitate teachers in the teaching of biblically-shaped education within their classrooms and schools.
The aim of the Conference is to build networks between Christian teachers, assist in the development of innovative approaches to teaching and learning so that Christ is honoured, and help teachers create resources that integrate a Christian world view.
The Conference also aims to inspire teachers to see their profession as a ministry vocation and calling to serve God, and to identify and support emerging school leaders, along with current leadership, to build on their knowledge of Christ within an educational framework.
The next Christians in Teaching Conference will be held on May 5, 2018
As teachers, we know that education, appropriately delivered, can contribute a great deal to the human flourishing of individuals and whole communities. The 2018 CiT Conference will offer a rich mixture of dynamic speakers to equip you in your role in biblically-shaped education.

2017 Christians in Teaching Conference
At the 2017 Christians in Teaching Conference, Philip Dow spoke on the pursuit of Intellectual Character and its value in education. Dow adeptly outlined the notion that Intellectual Character is not about thinking skills or knowledge, rather, it is about habits of mind. These habits of mind include courage, carefulness, curiosity, tenacity, humility, honesty and fair-mindedness, and are valuable, if not imperative, in developing virtuous, critical thinking students who endeavour to pursue truth and meaning in both their learning and the world.
