Thursday 16 November
The programme on Thursday will be comprised of three themes:
Session One: Mental Health and Wellbeing
Pattie Santelices, Principal Officer (Mental Health & Wellbeing), City of Edinburgh Council will deliver a keynote and outline how can we work together to support a positive and proactive approach to mental health and wellbeing in schools.
Session Two: Visible Learning
Visible Learning means an enhanced role for teachers as they become evaluators of their own teaching. According to one of the current leaders in educational research - John Hattie - Visible Learning and Teaching occurs when teachers see learning through the eyes of students and help them become their own teachers. Sarah Philp, Director of Learning Scotland with Osiris Educational will lead this session which will provide an insight into the approach.
Session Three: Authentic Leadership
Emma Bell will lead this session. Emma has worked with many organisations focusing on high performance teams. She is also an established contributor to our School Leadership Programme. Emma will facilitate an interactive workshop with a key aim to unlock and enhance leadership potential of self and others.
Conference Dinner and Guest Speaker
We are delighted to welcome Alison Walker as our after-dinner speaker. Alison was the first female voice to be heard reporting on live football for the BBC in the 1990s. During her time with the BBC she interviewed countless leading sports personalities. She now covers Scottish elections, travel and education. We look forward to her company.
