QLD Seminar: Good Theory Good Practice (Hybrid Event)

The Queensland CDAA committee are excited to announce that our annual Good Theory Good Practice professional development day is on Saturday 7th October from 9am – 2.30pm AEST.

It will again be a hybrid in-person and online event. Registrations are open to career practitioners from across Australia and overseas.

Online registrants will be incorporated into the event and included in questions to guests, lunchtime chats with each other, and in-person registrants who wander over to say hello!

This event will be fully interactive and inclusive for all attendees. Morning tea and Lunch catering provided to all in-person attendees. Our guest speakers will be attending in person at Stuartholme School. 

The program:

  • Guest speaker - Professor Peter McIlveen (UniSQ / ACCELL) - History of the Future of Work

    Everything is new, apparently. Is it? Career practitioners are bombarded with new information, new services, new ways of working in to thrive in the new world of order of work. This presentation challenges assumptions about the world of work by taking a brief tour of a history of the future of work.

  • Guest speaker - Dr Michael Healy (National Careers Education Manager, myfuture.edu.au) - Theories at the Bottom of the Garden 

    As career development practitioners, we are expected to be familiar with career development theories and skilled in applying them to our practice. As a community we often assert our expertise with reference to theory-informed and evidence-based practice. But what exactly do we mean by the word theory, and how exactly do we translate theoretical insights into practical benefits for our clients?

    In this session, Michael will reflect on his own professional and academic engagement with theory. He will describe how theory is not a single specific form of knowledge, but rather it is developed, described, and used in different ways, in different scholarly and professional disciplines. He will offer a simple model to help understand how we as career development practitioners can reflexively integrate career development theory in support of their work with their clients.
