SPEVI 2021 Online Conference

This event will run 18-19 January 2021.

The Conference theme ‘Celebrating Change’ refers to events during 2020 that forced drastic changes in all aspects of our lives, particularly in the education sector where delivery of education and support services switched to a remote, often online environment. Our online conference will allow us to look back at a year of change and then forward to what we've learned and how our students can continue to receive the best possible educational experience in a changing environment. All current SPEVI members enjoy FREE Conference registration!

SPEVI Community of Practice

In order to support all specialist teachers (Vision Impairment) as a collective to support students who may be learning at home during the Covid-19 pandemic, SPEVI has created a Community of Practice – Online Learning. The webinars are free and are for SPEVI members only.
The next (fifth) meeting - via Zoom - will be scheduled for Term 4 . A short, 3 question survey has been circulated among SPEVI members to gain insight as to what you would like us to include in future communities of practice.

We are also collating and growing a list with useful sites that may be helpful for you during this time. Read more about how you can be involved with the Community of Practice, and download the resources document from the Community of Practice webpage.
