Australian Teachers of Media, Queensland’s Annual State Conference MOMENTUM, presented by University of Southern Queensland and Essential Screen Skills, is an opportunity for Queensland Primary Arts teachers, and Media Arts and Film, Television and New Media teachers to unite and work collaboratively with industry and tertiary practitioners, highly accomplished teachers and QCAA education officers. We will learn new ways that we can support the academic, social and emotional development of our students so they can thrive in an ever-changing and uncertain future and be on the front foot for the impending changes to the national curriculum.

This year’s conference will be a hybrid of face-to-face and virtual sessions, providing delegates the opportunity to hear from a range of speakers and to engage in practical workshops over two full days.
