The EPPC Conference was the best conference I have been to in which the sharing of teaching practice, practical ideas and the ability to network with teachers and share philosophies on improving practice was amazing. I have since come back to work invigorated to not improve on measures we are implementing here, but also with the thought that we are on the right track and I have concrete concepts from presenters on where to next. I am already having conversations about how we are going to change practice and improve on what happens in our classrooms and plan also to share some of these practical applications with the wider community through my professional organisation. Thank you for the well-presented, well-organised and highly enjoyable conference. I am already looking forward to Sydney 2015!

I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you...It was great to have gained some new learning, AND a new network of people I could connect to for further professional learning.

I really enjoyed the whole journey as well as my presentation experience this morning.

Thank you for making the conference a success. We really appreciated your thorough, professional and encouraging approach.

I found the sessions I attended to be very well thought through and stimulating. Conversations over meal breaks were equally rich and thought provoking! I greatly enjoyed my time at the conference.

I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to attend the ACER conference – I am overwhelmed by how useful it was – plus the great atmosphere too. Lovely to meet fellow volunteers and the ACER staff and I have made lots of contact with like-minded educators.

ACER continues to go from good to great in my view in its strategic intent to engage teachers and schools in research, analysis and quality improvement of schools. You are doing a great job! We got a tremendous amount out of the conference and sat at the airport for several hours before our flight developing recommendations for our own school to explore further based on the high quality work being undertaken in other schools and jurisdictions.
