On Saturday 30 March we hosted our first Teachers’ Conference. Our guest speakers Roger Hunt, Luke Meddings, Jonathan Dykes, Mary Grennan and our very own Sophie Cocault produced a series of motivating and inspiring talks on the theme of “Experiencing Learning” – how do we get people to realise just how much they’re learning in class?

Titles of talks on the day were:

  • Experiencing Learning
  • Peer Observations: Making the invisible in our Teaching Visible!
  • The Reality of Virtual Reality
  • Suck it and See: Building Content on Clove Rock
  • Quality Classroom Interaction


  • Five Generic Approaches to Grammar

Luke tied everything together amazingly in his closing plenary referencing topics as diverse as clove rock, exams, How to speak Hip, having a stash for the man and his current obsession, ‘Derry Girls’ – we still can’t believe nobody’s called Luke a “big ride” before!

We’ll be doing Edition 2 of the conference around same time next year so get your places booked now!
