The School

Queensland University of Technology is a highly successful Australian university with an applied emphasis in courses and research. While they are based in Brisbane, Queensland, we have a global outlook. With some 45,000 students, including 6,000 from overseas, and an annual budget of more than $800 million, they are positioned to grow and develop as one of Australia's leading universities.

The Project

Acclaimed poet Zenobia Frost will lead 50 pre-service teachers in a special professional development event held in partnership with the Queensland University of Technology. As part of the University’s extensive teaching program, teaching students are required to take professional experience placements. Zenobia will assist these budding teachers in preparing for these placements using our Poetry Object Creative Resource as a lens to teach poetry. Read her poem Civic Duty here.
