MoE.2 Conference – Dunston Hall, Norwich
Such has been the outstanding responses from the successes of the first set of national conferences, we are creating opportunities for practitioners and other users of the system to move onto the next steps which are beyond a basic introduction to the system (as in MoE 1 2006-07 model) – to a deeper awareness of the sets of practices, sequences and procedures that are needed to implement the work over a protracted period of time. We have used the extensive sets of feedback materials gathered from all the MoE 1 events and from the www.mantleoftheexpert.com website to construct these in depth structured training workshops. The team of tutors have designed the conference contents, guided and mentored by professor Heathcote, from the needs expressed.
Delegates: Minimum of 100 and maximum of 160.
Conference Fee: Â£195.00
Our second set of national conferences aims to:
- Enable teachers to advancing and improve their skills and practices in Mantle of the Expert system by specific training workshops led by the inventor of the system as well as the UKs foremost classroom based trainers and practitioners.
- Provide opportunities for in depth training for existing users of the system.
- Provide guidance, resources and support for colleagues who are at the trialling phase in schools and other settings to take the experiments further.
- Examine in depth how the teacher uses new procedures and deploys four key learning paradigms for learning-procedures for:
- enquiry based learning;
- constructing drama for learning experiences;
- implementing the MoE system itself and instruction.
