We are very pleased to be able to announce the second Reading Teaching and Learning Conference to take place at Reading College on Saturday 27 June. You can register for free here.

This free day of CPD will showcase great Teaching and Learning from across the education sector, including the FE sector and will cost nothing. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend a number of sessions on the day that will each contain collaboration, discussion and learning aplenty.

Matt Bromley has been confirmed as the keynote speaker on ‘The Science of Learning’ and Mindset as well as facilitating a workshop on ‘The ingredients for outstanding learning’. Matt is an experienced school and college leader, an education writer and consultant, and a teacher-trainer. You can view his bio here.

The day will embody Reading College’s own ‘Pass It On‘ ethos with practitioners sharing their time, resources and passion in order to inspire others. Students will have a very visible presence on the day; providing the food, technology support and visitor services. You can read more about the day here.

This is part of a series of posts written by our #ReadTL15 workshop speakers. Third up is Barney Angliss.

WHAT WILL YOUR WORKSHOP BE ABOUT?

Language and memory

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 5 WORDS:

You’re not nineteen forever. But

WHAT DOES EDUCATION MEAN TO YOU?

After nature and nurture, one last throw of the dice.

WHAT IS THE BEST CPD YOU’VE EVER DONE AND WHY?

Sorry, I’m not a First-Aider.

WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?

It’s probably what I was born to do. This, or wiring the shed.

WHAT IS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT OF YOUR WORKING LIFE AND WHY?

I’m lucky: parents say “Thank you” quite often. That sticks.

WHO HAS HAD THE GREATEST INFLUENCE ON YOU AND WHY?

My father-in-law: started with nothing, envied nobody, gave away his greatest treasure to a Tom-fool teacher from England.

THANK A TEACHER:

Frank Ahern.
