Teaching Schools South West is delighted to announce the first TSSW Summer Conference will now be a virtual conference on Wednesday 1 July 2020 from 0930 to 1320.
During a time of unprecedented challenge for schools, we are keen to offer an event that will inspire and bring the profession together – albeit virtually. The conference will be delivered through webinars with the following programme of exciting keynotes and workshops:
Christine Counsell | Education Consultant and previously Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge: “Shaping a powerful curriculum: knowledge, literacy and inclusion”
Professor Becky Francis | Chief Executive Officer of the Education Endowment Foundation:
“Using evidence to narrow the gap”
Dr Sam Friedman | Associate Professor in Sociology at London School of Economics:
“The Class Ceiling: Why it Pays to be Privileged”
Professor Paul Kirschner | Professor Emeritus at the Open Universiteit:
“Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: What Educational Psychology tells us about Good Teaching”
Open to school leaders, teachers, Governors, researchers and other educational professionals, an added benefit of virtual delivery is that delegates can view the recordings of all the workshops from the day and the keynotes and workshops are appropriate for both primary and secondary.
This is a not-for-profit event and tickets are £50/£35 for TSSW members.
Please note, due to the Covid-19 social distancing restrictions the conference date supersedes the original date of Thursday 11 June 2020.
