You do not have to present anything, you can always be an Enthusiastic Lurker!



Seven Minute Micropresentations

▴ ▾

Whether it is about your classroom displays, encouraging speaking and listening or an engaging web tool, your talk must be about real learning activities. It must be practical and applicable.



1. Martine Leitch - TBC

2. Kayleigh Glendinning - "Senegal: links to freedom of education"

3. Roisin McCusker & Hannah Gall - "Partnerships with families"

4. Maureen McWhirter - British Red Cross School Projects

5. Gillian Kilgour - Burns Initiative




Two Minute NanoPresentations


Whether it is about your classroom displays, encouraging speaking and listening or an engaging web tool, your talk must be about real learning activities. It must be practical and applicable.



1. Patrick Sprehe - "Working with parents: an American perspective"

2. Jackie Sangster - Scran

3. Sue Ellis & Laura Herron - International Module at Strathclyde




 Exhibitions - Various education partners and different organisations within and outwith the university will have exhibitions, showcasing their support materials and free resources to support learning and teaching.  



Question Time


There will also be a panel discussion with representatives from a variety of sectors. 


Confirmed Panel Members:


 Amy Reid - Probationer and previous committee member of CPD Strathclyde. 


Edward Sosu -   Lecturer and researcher at University of Strathclyde.

Matthew Boyle - Service Manager for Professional Learning, West Dumbartonshire & voice behind Inside Learning Podcasts. 


Tom Hamilton - Director of Education and Professional Learning at General Teaching Council Scotland. 






So post your questions for our panel:

1.  'Making Scotland the best place to grow up' is a current government slogan being employed to unite all those who work with children behind a common cause.  I would like to ask the panel; do slogans such as these perpetuate a discourse and culture of competition in education and beyond?  Should we not in fact be striving to ensure education (life) is equally good for all children regardless of (imaginary) boundaries?




2. What are the best examples that you have experienced, in Scotland or internationally, where schools are successfully addressing disadvantage?


3. Given the SNP commitment to enhanced state provision for children in the early years, and the differences in direction of education policy in Scotland v's England; is an Independent Scotland a better place for children to grow up?



4.  In terms of classroom practice, what do you think is needed to enable Scotland to move forward in education?

5.   How should a C.f.E look in the classroom?


6.  Do you think child centered, responsive planning is at odds with a C.f.E outcomes and need to show progression and depth?









Keep adding rows as and when you need to...
