How do teachers combine research with the practical wisdom to confidently practise teacher autonomy?

On Friday 16th June, I had the privilege of speaking ~200 colleagues at a Teaching and Learning Conference (#TLconf17) in London. For those who attended, you can download both my presentations below.

The theme of the conference was quite simply teaching and learning. In the increasingly complex world of education, Osiris brought together some of the best researchers and practicing UK educators to cut to the heart of what makes really excellent teaching.

I also had the honour of meeting Professor John Hattie (and sharing the same stage); listening to some excellent thoughts on all-things teaching and learning from the following people:

  • Professor John Hattie


  • Alex Quigley, deputy headteacher
  • Dr Jonathan Sharples, senior researcher at the Education Endowment Foundation
  • David Didau, ex-teacher and education consultant
  • Dr Sam Twiselton from the Sheffield Institute for Education
  • Shaun Allison, deputy headteacher and teacher Andy Tharby, authors of Making Every Lesson Count
  • Cat Scutt from the Chartered College of Teaching

For those who attended my keynote, here is the link to sign up to the Verbal Feedback Action Research.


Thanks for the feedback and for coming along.
