Alternative ways of educating teachers to educate children differently: What do curriculum, assessment and pedagogy look like when ‘done differently’?
23 Jun 2018
Online registration has now closed. If you want to attend this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to register onsite.
This conference looks to bring together teachers, educators, academics and other practitioners – especially those who lead or see themselves as having a remit to lead in some way, even if not as a manager – into a space of child-led and alternative education.
In this space ideas, philosophies and principles for putting children first are privileged. Leaders in and of or for school education – at every level of the teaching career ladder – are invited to join the BERA Alternative Education SIG, the BERA Educational Leadership SIG and the BERA Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy SIG for a day conference of presentations, interactive workshop sessions, networking and professional support.
The day as a whole is to build bridges, develop professional knowledge and thus practice around putting the child first in a range of education contexts. The day ultimately is to give leaders in school education ways to embed leading for the child into their schools and tools to deal with any agenda which marginalises children and their voice in teaching and learning.
Networking/discussion groups (implications for research and practice)
Being alternative in the mainstream – the pain and peril, the joy and the success
Group two: Getting out of mainstream schooling to do education the ‘right’ way and to find oneself as an educator
Group three: Researching alternative education in schools, FE and HE
Moving forward – plenary
