Applications for #SCEL2017 Discovery Session facilitators now open

We are looking for people to share their experiences of leading collaborative learning by hosting Discovery Sessions with participants as part of the SCEL 2017 conference.

During these 45 minute sessions – which will have a small open atmosphere of discussion and collaboration – you may want to share an innovative leadership strategy, insightful perspective or inspiring case study relating to collaborative learning that could benefit your fellow teachers.

We’re looking for a wide range of people to host a discovery session – so whether you are a teacher, middle leader, school leader or system leader – we’d love you to share your experience of leading collaborative learning or how you support leading collaborative learning within your team, school or establishment.

Discovery Session facilitators will also be involved in facilitation throughout the day in order to help SCEL in taking forward learning from the conference to enhance and enable leadership of collaborative learning in the future.

Discovery sessions at a glance

  • Each session will be a 45-minute table discussion with conference participants.
  • We’re looking for a wide range of facilitators (teachers, middle leaders, school leaders, system leaders).
  • You are welcome to bring along a laptop, iPad or handouts but there will be no projector.

Once a submission is made, it is viewed by a selection panel for consideration. The panel will be looking for submissions which offer delegates the chance to explore and discuss a range of real life examples of leading collaborative learning in the Scottish context. Discovery Session facilitators will receive a free pass to the conference (usual price £110).

Applications close on the Wednesday 15 February and you will be notified about your submission by Monday 27 February.
