Teaching and learning
8-9 September 2016
The second of three Cambridge Schools Conferences planned for 2016 was hosted by Homerton College, Cambridge, UK on 8–9 September 2016. Delegates were encouraged to explore and discuss the theme of ‘Leading learning’ – a topic which is fundamental to the work of all educators. 207 Teachers, Exam Officers and School Leaders attended from over 40 countries and took the opportunity to meet with delegates from other countries around the world.
They heard keynote speeches from Matthew Syed, columnist for The Times and acclaimed author and Professor Deborah Eyre, a global educational leader, researcher and writer. We were also pleased to welcome David Mansfield as our third keynote speaker. David has been a long-tern collaborator with Cambridge International Examinations supporting Cambridge schools to improve their delivery.
Delegates also experienced a new format for the event, the ‘Big Ideas’ keynote hosted three twenty minute keynotes from David Weston, Nicola Morgan and James de Winter, after which a discussion with the audience unfolded.
