Education Question Time

October 14, 2010

The problem with Question Time is that it is filled with politicians whose only concern is covering their backs and doing their best not to be contentious. So what would you do if you got the chance to ask questions of some of the sharpest people working in Education? Even better, it’s 1st class CPD and it’s free!

Con Morris and the CPD Scotland team have pulled out all the stops to come up with great panel for their first ‘CPD Question Time’. The theme is: How do we get system-wide change in education?

And as a bonus, the panellists are a pretty good mix for tackling this theme: Bruce Robertson, Margaret Alcorn, John Connell, and Greg Whitby.

I’m particularly looking forward to catching up with Greg Whitby, one of Australia’s foremost and forward-thinking educators (you can find his blog at Bluyonder… and I highly recommend it!). I had the real pleasure of meeting him and hearing him talk last year when he dropped in to LTS to deliver a thought-provoking and inspiring talk which I blogged about at the time. (Brief clip below)

Greg Whitby – October 2009

This promises to be an equally thought-provoking session, and you can be part of the audience by signing up at the cpdqt wiki. Even better, you can put forward your own questions for the panel on to the wiki.

Spaces are limited, so don’t waste any time. If you are in Glasgow next Thursday you owe it to yourself to get to LTS to take part in a Question Time with a difference… one where you will hear some answers! See you there! 😉
