    How to support young people and teachers who stammer
    Details:
    Upto 8% of children will stammer at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, this will stay as a lifelong condition for 1%. People who Stammer are more likely to suffer from adverse mental health issues. My work is not for the 1% of people who Stammer but for the 99% of you that don't. You can make reasonable adjustments in your teaching that can make a huge difference to these kids.

    Using Adlerian Psychology to build resilience in times of uncertainty
    Details:
    Teachers have faced a stressful year. In some way this sentence is true in any year, as the profession is synonymous with stress, but this year it particularly true. In my talk I want to share the work of Alfred Adler an Austrian psychologist who developed a philosophy of living that helps people to manage their emotions and seize control of their life when the unexpected happens. The talk will give a brief outline of his life, some of his ideas and a few examples of how they can be applied in educational settings.

    Reflections on practice co-created by experts and novices using video collaboration software
    Details:
    This talk will discuss how our project works with students to trial the use of video collaboration software for enabling reflective practice. This software provides an opportunity to record behaviour and interactions in any practice-based setting. It is often used to capture classroom-based teaching and learning. Practitioners can then use the video collaboration tools to reflect on their own teaching, give peer feedback or gain feedback from a mentor or tutor. The viability of the software is explored within Initial Teacher Training (ITT) as students co-create video content with postgraduate education students.

    Details:
    What does it mean for schools to deliver Cultural Capital? This needs to be deconstructed to enable educators to think more deeply about what Cultural Capital actually means and what it stands for. The ultimate question is whose Cultural Capital are we talking about? Is it the Stormzy versus Mozart choice that we are making? Or is it more profound than simply a choice between modern and classical? popular culture versus tradition and the test of time? And where does a drive for a Govian model of Cultural Capital leave class, race, gender equality?

    Understanding the teenage brain and how to work it into your teaching
    Details:
    Human beings and our students in particular are inherently selfish (an important survival skill), understanding more about how the teenage brain works has for me been a game changer. Although there is quite the array of complicated language, there are simple findings that can be used for all lessons. I will be sharing my findings from reading texts from Daniel Kahneman, Malcolm Gladwell, Steve Peters 'Chimp Brain', Nicola Morgan and Matthew Syed. Knowing and understanding how the brain works will help us as teachers to control our 'chimp brains'. More importantly, we can use this understanding to develop strategies in teaching PSE, life skills, revision, behaviour management and intervention.

    Self-Care as a Pathway to Professional Well-Being
    Details:
    Educators are burning out at an alarming rate. When this happens, not only are we unable to serve our students but also, we lose connection with the spark that brought us to education in the first place. While counter-intuitive to most educators, learning to prioritize our relationship with, and care for, ourselves is proving to have a significant impact on educators' ability to stay engaged and effective in their roles. It is vital for educators to learn how to take care of themselves so that they can have the impact they desire on their school communities.
