The activity is aimed at teachers to increase their understanding of how the ACT Legislative Assembly works and how members are elected using the Hare-Clark electoral system. Primary, secondary and college teachers are welcome to attend this event.
This program will not only increase participants' knowledge of the Assembly but will provide a useful teaching tool for those teachers who are engaged in teaching Civics and Citizenship programs. In addition, teachers will be able to use the knowledge gained about the Hare-Clark system to conduct classroom or SRC elections. The activity will also include the opportunity for participants to meet and question some MLAs, and visit the Parliamentary Chamber. A certificate (record of attendance) will be sent to all participants.
Attendance at this seminar can be counted towards staff PD allocation, there is no cost for this activity.
