Classroom to campus: the heritage of modern education

Classroom to Campus is a three-day symposium at the University of Melbourne, 26–28 November 2012, on the heritage of educational buildings.

Core to the program are keynote lectures by leading conservation architects and authorities on modernism David Fixler and John Allen, plenary addresses by educationalist Fazal Rizvi and school heritage expert Elain Harwood. Discussions will revolve around:
