Imaginative Teaching – Outstanding Learning
The National Executive Committee stated that: Imaginative teaching is about taking risks; it is about innovation in our classrooms; it is about being the change you want to see. But outstanding learning only occurs when educator and learner take these steps hand in hand to explore the world as it was, as it is and how it should be.
Conference explored these concepts through:
Performance: Big Brum TIE Company performed extracts from the latest Edward Bond play, The Edge. Theatre Company Blah, Blah, Blah performed Hide and Seek.
Key notes: provided by Mike Davies, Sheila Preston, Iona Towler-Evans.
Workshops: led by Luke Abbott, Luke Williams, John Airs, Richard Keiran, Hywel Roberts and Grace Robinson.
The TIE forum: was led by Tag McEntegart and included contributions from Anthony Haddon, Ian Yeoman and Chris Cooper.
The International Forum: was led by Luke Abbott and Adrian Bailey with a live Skype link to the Qattan Centre for Educational Research and Development in Ramallah, Palestine.
