Teaching and Learning Conference, 28 March 2020

28 March 2020

Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, Aldenham Road, Elstree, WD6 3BT

Following our very successful and sold out event last year, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls welcomes you to join us for our fourth Teaching and Learning Conference.


What is learning? What does the research tell us? In all honestly, it probably tells us too much; confuses us in fact. Should we be asking students to work in groups or alone? One results in possible social loafing and the other in a lack of mental stimulation. Should students be teaching each other? What if they misunderstand the topic and mis-teach it? What about direct instruction, does it allow neural pathways to develop as much as active learning does? Should we be teaching or facilitating, sticking to the specification or going off topic, supporting or challenging? Listening to a teacher, looking at images on a board, referring to an article and taking notes simultaneously, is that cognitive overload or best practice? What about what comes first; knowledge or skill, planning or marking, mistakes or resilience?

Our fourth annual T+L conference will give you the opportunity to hear from a variety of internationally renowned speakers, discuss some of these questions, and hopefully make your own mind up about what is best for your pupils. There isn’t a one size fits all approach to education, and I am excited that on the 28 March 2020 you will get the opportunity to explore this further.

Keynote Speakers: Laura McInerney and Matthew Burton

Tickets cost £35 and include a welcome breakfast, refreshments and a hot lunch
