The SWAT conference is now live and the line up looks incredible. Key note speakers include Professor Sir Steve Smith and Tom Sherrington, who have such a wide range of experience and ideas between them – two lectures certainly of note. The workshops could not be more varied from ‘art in the curriculum’ to ‘sticking your head in the dragons mouth’; there are opportunities for every teacher to get new ideas and to inspire.
I admit the notion of a dragon may conjure up images we may wish to avoid, but I am confident that the 3rd July will not be as scary as the image suggests. The “Mastering the Dragon” conference is a fantastic opportunity to get together with colleagues in similar backgrounds, facing similar challenges. It will provide interesting, though provoking professional development as well as an opportunity to meet new people.
Please browse the conference booklet for further information and to whet your appetite for a great teaching and learning conference.
I look forward to seeing many faces there – a DHSB Road Trip!
