JMB Edu Conf 2018 W1137

 

The aim of our Conference this year is to offer peer and specialist-delivered workshops on emerging developments in leadership, pedagogy and student engagement as well as offering opportunities for you to interact with policy makers, practitioners, specialists, support services and commercial enterprises.

We intend to leave our participants – principals, chairpersons, deputy principals and teachers – with greater clarity around policy, practice and possibilities for inclusive and innovative teaching and learning for all our students.

As well as a series of relevant workshops, we will hear from educational consultant Dr Mark Fennell, who will present ‘A Framework for Contemporary Thinking about Curriculum’ and also from former teacher and award-winning author, Roddy Doyle on ‘The Creative Process as an Adventure!’
