Teaching and Learning Conference 2017

  • Keeping the Focus on Teaching and Learning: No gimmicks. No jargon. Just good practice, distilled
  • Build on the best of practical pedagogy and combine it with new and emerging research
  • Featuring a Keynote from Professor John Hattie on the latest T&L research

The theme of this year’s conference is quite simply teaching and learning.

In the increasingly complex world of education, we have brought together the best researchers and practicing UK educators to cut to the heart of what makes really excellent teaching.


With sessions from:

  • Professor John Hattie

  • Ross McGill AKA @TeacherToolkit

  • Alex Quigley

  • Dr Jonathan Sharples

  • David Didau

  • Dr Sam Twiselton from the Sheffield Institute for Education

  • Shaun Allison and Andy Tharby, authors of Making Every Lesson Count

  • Cat Scutt from the Chartered College of Teaching


Examine the evidence and combine with the practical wisdom of experienced classroom teachers so you can confidently promote and practice teacher autonomy.


What will leaders take back to school?

  • Pedagogical knowledge: update you own expertise to provide an effective and clear steer. 
  • Teacher recruitment crisis: ease the effects by using the expertise that exist, and finding the bright spots.
  • CPD: apply a bottom-up approach to CPD and embed what really works
  • TAs: maximise cost-efficiency and enhance pupil learning
  • Teacher expertise: enable teachers to be their best, rather than look their best


What will teachers take back to school?

  • Research v practice: take the best of principles and apply them to way you teach
  • Core skills: save time and energy by getting better at the techniques that make the difference
  • Realistic development: make marginal – but not burdensome – gains in pedagogy
  • Survive and thrive ideas: tips and advice from award-winning teachers who have experienced the highs and lows of the classroom
