Swifter, Higher, Stronger – Championing teacher leadership
The 2012 ACTS Winter Conference, sponsored by the Scottish Government, will bring together around one-hundred chartered teachers and other educationists, committed to Scottish education. The aim is to facilitate dialogue and learning around the theme of ‘teacher leadership’.
Workshop topics will include: approaches to improvement and assessment of impact, professional enquiry in education, learning rounds, action learning sets, accomplished teaching, teacher learning communities, professional networks, teachers as researchers, leading for understanding, and effective peer coaching and mentoring.
Such a focus can help build capacity and move forward our aspirations to reach for higher standards and higher quality teaching and learning.
Speakers will include chartered teachers, headteachers, academics, and other educationists from a variety of sectors, who will share their experiences of working in partnership to lead learning in classrooms and schools.
We will find out about, and engage with, the contributions that chartered teachers are making, or could be making, in strengthening the learning capacity of their organisations and communities, through creative teaching and learning, innovation and ingenuity.
The conference programme is now available.
