Video Linked Incursions
If you are out of public transport access to Parliament House, our education office can offer a free video linked incursion for your class. One of our education office staff will connect with your classroom via MS Teams and run an online workshop. You have several choices for the workshop:
Option A: Passage of a Bill – 1 hour
The Passage of a Bill program follows an idea for change (of the students’ choice) through its process to become a law. Students will be encouraged to engage with both sides of a debate and consider complex issues and their broader impact on communities.
Option B: Representation – 1 hour
The Representation program highlights how an individual and their community is represented, how electorates are formed, why it is difficult to be a representative, and why it is integral to communicate with our representatives.
Option C: Merged Passage of a Bill & Representation – 1.5 hours
The merged program offers a mixture of options A and B, covering representation concepts, and includes a debate to pass a law.
Your classroom will require a screen and access to MS teams. You will need to be able to show your classroom on camera, and have a microphone for use.
