Australia-China Digital BRIDGE

AEF Connect 2016

The Australia-China Digital BRIDGE Program is a collaborative, international,  professional learning partnership program for educators across Australia and China.  The program is an initiative funded by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations and implemented by the Asia Education Foundation at Asialink, The University of Melbourne. 



Participants: Who is this for?  

Applications are open for any teacher who works directly with students in the classroom in any Australian school. Teachers can be from any subject or discipline area, any year levels and any sector. We encourage educators who have the motivation to strengthen their own intercultural understanding, digital pedagogies, global competence, build relationships with China and provide collaborative international partnership learning opportunities to their school and students to apply.

How does a school apply?

Applications for the 2023 cohort are now closed.

What are the key dates?

Cohort 2 will be commencing on the 27th February 2023 with a tech trial, before the welcome event on the 1st of March. Participants will then take part in nine online workshops, coming together every Wednesday (except during the school and public holidays). Please see the schedule on the flyer here for the full breakdown of the professional learning program.  


What is the cost associated with registration?

This includes: (1) funding to support the costs of participation in the online Professional Learning Program, including design sprint; and (2) ongoing support in relation to professional learning in Australia and China.
