Conference: Australian Conference on Lutheran Education

Australian College on Lutheran Education 
Wise Up! - Transforming Mind, Body and Heart in Lutheran Education
30th September to 2nd October 2013

Approximately every four years Lutheran Education Australia and the respective regions organise a major conference to celebrate Lutheran Education in Australia.  This conference is named ACLE, Australian Conference on Lutheran Education.  The 2013 conference will be held in Brisbane on the 30th September to 2nd October 2013.  The ACLE4 conference theme is Wise Up!  Transforming Mind, Body and Heart in Lutheran Education.

The theme takes up the work of the Lutheran church and its schools in providing the wisdom of God for the development of the whole of life for young people.  Education in a Lutheran school is a transformational activity that engages all aspects of the human experience.  The getting of this wisdom requires forward thinking, to address how the traditions passed onto us may be reformed into new ways of engaging learners.

During the conference there will be presentations and opprtunities to collaborate with expert contemporary thinkers as well as participate in numerous fellowship activities with like-minded professionals across Lutheran Schools in Australia and other countries.  Most of the conference will be held in the state-of-the-art Brisbane Convention Centre in one of Australia's beautiful cities, Brisbane.
