Learning Conference Summer 2017: ‘Teachers as Learners’

Saltgate

JCG, kindly supported by Saltgate, is excited to be hosting the College’s second Learning Conference: ‘Teachers as Learners.’ The conference will take place on Friday 30th June and Saturday 1st July 2017.

It has become increasingly clear that teachers striving to improve the educational outcomes of their students need to attend to their own learning, and to engage with research and evidence from beyond their classrooms.

As such, the Learning Conference will:

  • Bring together a range of leading experts in the fields of education and teachers’ professional learning
  • Provide education professionals with a forum to share, refine and reflect on their own practice
  • Include, on the Saturday, practical seminars and workshops led by teachers as well as by visiting speakers

Speakers include:

Philippa Cordingley (@PhilippaCcuree) Enriching professional and pupil learning through engaging with evidence - what makes a difference?

Friday and Saturday

Robert Coe (@ProfCoe) How can teachers learn to be better teachers?

Friday

Yana Weinstein (@doctorwhy) and Megan Smith (@DrSmithRIC) Strategies for effective learning

Friday

Jacek Brant (@IOE_London) Teacher as a researcher: teacher as a learner

Friday and Saturday

David Weston (@informed_edu) Unleashing great teaching: the secrets of a self-improving staff room

Saturday
