The Festival of Education is a 2 day event for educators, parents & students to discuss all things UK education-related. Tickets are only 27 pounds and since the event is on a Saturday and Sunday, and it's just outside of London, I imagine that quite a few of the Classroom Canada and Classroom America teachers will be in attendance.
I will be in Seattle and Alaska on those dates, so can't make it myself, but hope to attend next year's event if they announce it far enough in advance.
Here's the write-up on their website:
Be part of the debate. Hear the latest thinking. See where education is heading.
The Sunday Times Festival of Education, in partnership with Wellington College, will be held in Berkshire on the weekend of 3rd and 4th July 2010. The Festival aims to make a significant contribution to the national debate about education, by inviting a wide range of experts to explore the key issues that face British education today and tomorrow.
As well as listening to panellists express thoughtful and expert opinions on aspects of primary, secondary and higher education, the Festival goer will also experience a range of informative and thought-provoking debates, workshops and entertainments.
This is the first venture of its kind where high profile speakers share information, argue policies and challenge opinions for the benefit of a public audience.How exciting! Do check out their website and try to attend if you are in London or thereabouts.
