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. Fourth up is Fran Loxley.
WHAT WILL YOUR WORKSHOP BE ABOUT?
Low effort, high impact literacy ideas for ALL subjects
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 5 WORDS:
OCD – sorry!
WHAT DOES EDUCATION MEAN TO YOU?
We have the power to change young people’s lives for the better. It is one of the most important jobs in the universe!
WHAT IS THE BEST CPD YOU’VE EVER DONE AND WHY?
Going to #TLT14 and #TLT5 – you get to meet awesome people, listen to brilliant discussions and share ideas that you know are going to have an incredible impact on your students’ learning. I’ve never been so excited for a Monday morning!
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Listening to the ridiculous statements and questions that come from my students – mostly my year 10s!
WHAT IS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT OF YOUR WORKING LIFE AND WHY?
The day I became an NQT, I entered teaching via a rather unorthodox route and I had finally got to where I was so desperate to be!
WHO HAS HAD THE GREATEST INFLUENCE ON YOU AND WHY?
In my working career…my SLT line manager has influenced me the most. She has been a role model and absolute inspiration; if I could be half as good as she is when I progress through my career then I know i’m doing an outstanding job!
THANK A TEACHER:
Ms Chubb – my geography teacher whilst I was at school. You’re the reason why I’m a teacher today. Your lessons were blooming hard work but you made them so funny. We were terrified of you and loved you all at once! Thank you! 🙂
