On Saturday 25 June 2016 The City of Leicester College will be hosting the “Leicester Teaching and Learning Summer Conference”. This will be a high-impact training conference for teachers run by teachers who want to make a bigger difference in the classroom.
This is a great opportunity for the Digilit Network to share good practice around use of technology in the classroom, and an opportunity to improve Digilit Skills across the city. It would be great to see members of the Digilit Network taking an active lead in delivering workshops throughout the day, and promoting the event with colleagues.
Workshops will provide engaging classroom based research and/or practice that will provoke excitement, interest and inspire teachers and which will ultimately impact on the learning and life chances of our young people. Each delegate will be able to attend up to eight 20 minute, or four 40 minutes sessions, or do a mixture of these. The day will include lunch and a key note speaker.
Anyone can submit a workshop proposal – if it’s something you’ve tried out in your classroom, then others will want to hear about it. If you’re keen to give it a go please submit the proposal by Monday 18 April 2016 to PSanderson@cityleicester.leicester.sch.uk and include the following details:
- Target audience:
- Length: (20 or 40 minutes)
- Expected outcomes:
- Outline of the session:
The conference is free to anyone who runs a workshop and all TCOLC staff. Delegates will only pay £30 each or £50 for two delegates. City schools will get 2 for the price of one.
If you don’t run a workshop, we hope you will all attend (and tell every teacher you ever met ever!).
