Time: 8.45am - 3.10pm
Venue: Sydney Central Business District Courts (Local, District and Supreme) and Governance Institute of Australia (Level 10, 5 Hunter Street Sydney NSW 2000) for Workshop

Australian law lives in the courts where legislation is interpreted on a daily basis. Legal Studies and Commerce teachers require a deep understanding of how courts work and how they affect the lives of offenders, victims and people in society, as well as strategies to incorporate what happens in the courts into their lessons.

Economics and Business Educators NSW, in association with the Rule of Law Institute of Australia (www.ruleoflaw.org.au), is conducting a field trip for teachers based on experiential learning specifically designed for teachers of the NSW Education and Standards Authority (NESA) Legal Studies and Commerce syllabuses. The course will be facilitated by Jackie Charles, Education Coordinator, at Rule of Law Institute of Australia. Participants will:

  • deepen their understanding of the subject matter in the NESA Legal Studies and Commerce (“Law in Society” and “Law in Action” topics) syllabuses and teaching and learning strategies
  • learn from key legal personnel who will address teachers and answer questions
  • visit courts (Local, District and Supreme) and observe court cases, engaging in professional discussions about the cases
  • access a range of legal resources and learn how to use these with their students
  • network with other Legal Studies and Commerce teachers.

Parliamentary Education Office in Canberra to visit Sydney in 2018

Andrew Back (Parliamentary Educator from Parliament of Australia in Canberra) has written to EBE NSW about the Parliamentary Education Office visiting Sydney in 2018. There are opportunities for incursions and teacher professional development sessions.

Copy of letter from Andrew Back, Parliamentary Education Officer - Parliament of Australia  (received by EBE NSW on 22 February 2018) 

Parliamentary Education Office

Dear Economics and Business Educators members,
My name is Andrew Back and I work for the Parliamentary Education Office (PEO) in Parliament House, Canberra.
The PEO provides a range of resources to students and teachers to help them better understand the Australian Parliament and engage with it. To date, over 2.1 million students have undertaken a PEO program.
Guided by the Australian Curriculum, the PEO also produces education materials for teachers to deliver civics education in their own classroom, and help ensure new teachers feel confident and properly equipped in this area.
The PEO will be visiting schools in the electorate of Chifley from 6-10th August, covering the area between Ropes Crossing, Riverstone, Arndell Park and Mount Druitt. We plan to visit schools to deliver programs to students, but also to provide support and resources, such as professional development sessions for teachers.
We would be interested in hearing from any teachers or educational networks who would like to work with us during our visit. The programs we could provide for you include:

  • A visit to your school to engage students in practical parliamentary programs,
  • A visit to your school to provide professional development for interested teachers, including teachers from other schools where suitable.
  • A meeting with any other professional teaching network or organisation who may be interested in pursuing the potential for future working partnerships.

We are flexible and can adapt these programs to suit you requirements. We are also able to offer these programs throughout the year via videoconferencing should you be unable to avail yourself of a program during our visit.
Please contact me if you have any questions, or would like to book a program.
Yours faithfully,

Andrew Back
Parliamentary Educator

NESA Review of Commerce Syllabus

The current Commerce syllabus was last revised in 2003. The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is converting the current Years 7–10 HSIE elective course syllabuses (including Commerce) into an online interactive format including (as applicable) update of content; inclusion of Australian Curriculum content; review for representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures; inclusion of Life Skills outcomes and content.

Commerce teachers are invited to complete the NESA online survey about the current Commerce syllabus (including Life Skills). Feedback from the survey will be considered as amendments are made to the syllabus.

The due date for the survey has been extended until 17 December 2017.

After completing the general information questions you will be able to provide specific feedback about the Commerce syllabus.

The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. Additional time will be required where you choose to provide comments in text boxes.

>> Complete an online survey

It may be useful to refer to a current syllabus while completing this survey.

You can also send your written submission to:

Emmanuel Karayiannis
Senior Curriculum Officer, Human Society and Its Environment
NSW Education Standards Authority
GPO Box 5300
Sydney NSW 2001
Email: emmanuel.karayiannis@nesa.nsw.edu.au
by 17 December 2017.

Economics and Business Educators NSW will be making a submission about the review of the Commerce syllabus and members are encouraged to contribute to the submission by sending their comments about the review of the Commerce syllabus to admin@ebe.nsw.edu.au.

Some questions to consider:

  • What are the strengths of the syllabus?
  • What are the challenges of the syllabus?
  • Considering the Commerce syllabus was last revised in 2003, to what extent is the current syllabus relevant to today's changing commercial environment and contemporary teaching and learning ?
  • Should Economics subject matter form the basis of one of the core topics? At the moment the Economics topic ("Our Economy") is an option.
  • What can be used from the Australian Curriculum: Economics and Business and the Australian Curriculum:Civics and Citizenship to develop a new Commerce syllabus?
