Event description

Description

Aims: A little like a school trip, this is a social gathering for a group of teachers/non-teachers with a common interest in STEM, Computer Science and Computing education (5-18 years) joining a public event. By joining our group, you will be able to indulge your interests and passion, forge friendships with others, and gain some inspiration, ideas & resources for activities to use with your classes or community.

Theme: UNDERSTANDING WHY CHILDREN CAN STRUGGLE TO LEARN

Speaker: Professor Susan Gathercole OBE

Programme:

  • 5.00-5.45pm Optional mEat & Greet in The Grey Friar Optional meeting before the public event, providing an opportunity for us to share news of events, projects, resources that support the teaching of #Computing in school and linking to the event theme. Plan to arrive early if you need to allow time for a drink/meal. If you have something interesting to share, please bring it with you.
  • 5.45-5.50 5 Minute Walk to Darwin Theatre - or skip the 'mEat & greet' and arrange to meet us at Darwin.
  • 6.00-9.00pm Lecture - We'll attend the lecture together as a group, more information here:
  • Professor Susan Gathercole OBE is one of Britain’s most eminent Psychologists, and a fellow of the British Academy. She is Director of the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at the University of Cambridge, where she established the innovative research clinic at the Centre for Attention, Learning and Memory (CALM) in 2014. This clinic has already helped over 800 children suffering from cognitive and behavioural problems. Come and hear how she does it!
  • We already have a group booking, so separate registration is not required.
  • Later - You may choose to join us for refreshments and geeky speak for some post-event discussion

Important: This is an 18+ only meetup and is independently organised by Alan O'Donohoe and friends. Our meetup is neither organised by, nor endorsed by UCLan. We will be attending a public event listed here online which you are at liberty to make your own independent arrangements for instead of registering here.


Spread the word: We'd love you to help us promote this event to any other teachers you think would like to attend, so please share it any way possible! Easily tell others you'll be attending by sharing it on Twitter and Facebook using the buttons at the bottom of this page.

Can't attend, won't attend: Don't be disappointed if you can't make this event - you could host something similar in your school without requiring too much fuss or organisation. To discover how exa.foundation can support improvement in your school visit: http://exa.foundation/training
