Celebrating 100 Years of Language Teacher Education at the University of Sydney
A 2016 NSW Language Teachers’ Event
2016 will mark 100 years of foreign language teacher education at the University of Sydney. The Faculty of Education and Social Work in conjunction with the Modern Language Teachers’ Association of New South Wales (MLTA of NSW) would like to celebrate with you.

We will recognise this historic occasion with an evening cocktail event to coincide with the MLTA of NSW’s Annual Conference next year. The evening will also launch a commemorative booklet to celebrate the accomplished language teachers in our schools and universities.

Please share your journey with us. If you have a story and any photos from your training period, please outline and include in a one page document to be considered for inclusion in the 100 Year Anniversary booklet.

The Faculty of Education and Social Work will also host a Where Are They Now? page on their website. If you graduated as a teacher of Languages at Sydney Teachers’ College/the University of Sydney (undergraduate or postgraduate), email your name, a quality headshot image and no more than 100 words about the language(s) you teach/taught, your experience studying and as a teacher in the schools you have taught.

You may also volunteer your time and work with a small group on the collation of our stories/ photos.

Most importantly, if you are in contact with any other language teachers who trained at the Sydney Teachers’ College/the University of Sydney please do share this message with them as we would like to celebrate with as many of you as possible!
