Dealing With Difficult Conversations - Cardiff

Date: 13 February 2020
Registration: 9:00 am - 9:30 am
Course: 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Location: cardiff
Difficult Conversations are the ones we’d rather put off. They consume our thinking leading up to them, they are uncomfortable, awkward and sometimes intimidating. It can be painful while they’re happening and then we ‘replay the mind tapes’ afterwards - with ‘what we said’, and then with ‘what we wished we’d said’ and then with ‘what we really felt’ and it can cause all those emotions all over again. Left unsaid, these conversations fester, distort & affect our relationships. Done badly, they erode morale and affect performance. And they can cause stress, anxiety, apathy and frustration for everyone concerned.

Great Learners Conference - Cardiff

Date: 14 February 2020
Registration: 8:30 am - 8:55 am
Conference: 8:55 am - 3:15 pm
Location: cardiff
Great Learners Conference lead by Will Ord who has trained teachers in over a thousand primary and secondary schools all over the UK and in twenty-five countries will include: What makes a great learner? This session will explore what great learners are, and provide very practical ways in which all teachers can contribute to their evolution in a busy setting. We’ll draw on a number of educationalists, including Guy Claxton and John Hattie. How can we build resilience, risk taking and challenge in to the learning process? This session will explore engagement and flow, and will deepen teachers’ understanding of The Learning Pit and Growth Mindsets. Very importantly, there will be an emphasis on practical things that all colleagues can try out in the classroom. How can teachers develop thinking and communication skills in every lesson? Drawing on the Philosophy for Children (P4C) pedagogy, this session will offer a really practical range of techniques for developing great thinking and dialogue (not mere conversation) in lessons. Particular emphasis will be on reasoning, argumentation, and collaborative thinking. How can the mind help itself to code, file, and access information? This will be a brief exploration of how we can develop our memory in very creative ways and help pupils to see their capacity to learn as changeable. We will also briefly consider key aspects of helpful and wasteful feedback. Both areas also connect to the Growth Mindset theme from the morning.
