CollectivED Knowledge Exchange: Creating Powerful Professional Learning in Education

The First CollectivED Knowledge Exchange: creating powerful professional learning through re-thinking coaching, mentoring and collaborative leadership in education

CollectivED: the Mentoring and Coaching Hub is delighted to be bringing together research and practice expertise for our first CollectivED Knowledge Exchange.  Our theme is enhancing professional learning opportunities through coaching and mentoring in education, and we welcome teachers, lecturers, leaders, governors, coaches, mentors and those researching the field to join is for a day of dynamic, informed and empowering conversations. Our aim is to support the generation of sustainable and impactful approaches to professional learning in schools, colleges and universities.

Are you open to new ideas? Would you like to implement approaches to professional learning which lead to enhanced knowledge and practices for teaching and learning, support effective collaboration, and sustain professional growth and development at all career stages. Are you interested in the links between coaching and mentoring and teacher well-being and retention? Is it time to create new structures for balancing support and accountability in education. Our speakers, Professor Rachel Lofthouse and Professor Christian van Nieuwerburgh, will present a keynote through a dialogue. Our knowledge exchanges will feature a series of round table discussions facilitated by experts within their field. Our participants will be invited to engage in meaningful conversations through which their own experiences and practices will unfold, and through which ideas will consolidate into decisions to take back into professional life.
