A conference at your place...
Exclusive and dynamic educational talks and discussion
Due to demand, we are delighted to announce details of our first online conference. Educators from around the world are invited to participate in this inaugural event, where the focus is on pedagogy, classroom practice, and ideas to improve teaching and learning.
The event will take place over 3 days in October 2017 (24-26 October) – planned to be during the half-term holidays for most educators in the UK – but educators are also invited along to share in the incredible pedagogy that goes on in classrooms around the world.

What will the conference actually look like?
We’ve secured our webinar software, and have checked that the platform works across all devices (PC/Mac/iPad/Android/iPhone). We will release the times when the presentations will go live, being played through the webinar software, introduced by one of our presenters. For those with access, you can pick and choose which presentations to watch as they go out live, and participate with a chat discussion (with the presenter, in most cases) after the talk is concluded. You can watch all speakers throughout the conference, or pick and choose which sessions to pop into.
But I'm not in the UK!
No problem. The sessions will last from 10 am to (approx) 8 pm GMT+1, so you may be able to attend sessions as they are being broadcast live. However, if you miss any live sessions, you will be able to ‘replay’ that section at a time suited to you. Clearly, you won’t be able to chat live with the speaker, but I am sure they will be more than happy to answer questions through Twitter afterwards.
I want all staff at school to have the conference available to them.
No problem. We offer discounts for bulk purchases, and each ticket will be issued with a unique code to allow access during the conference. Please contact us by clicking here, and we can send you a personalised quotation.
Do I actually get a 'ticket'?
The conference fee covers the cost of sending out a conference brochure to you, and a certificate of participation for professional development evidence. Also, you will receive an e-mail access code, which is your ticket and access code into the conference.
How can I get my company involved?
As this is our first attempt of organising an online conference we are quietly inviting sponsors or partners to support us in this venture.

Oh wow! This is great. I'd love to talk at the conference!
I know! It’s great, but we had to close applications for this first event, as we were becoming inundated with requests. We’re assuming that it will all go great, and we ourselves will have a lot of learning to do from this first event. However (keep it a secret), but we may hold the second event during the Easter 2018 break. We’ve opened online applications. Please click here to submit your information and talk idea.
