Welcome to the conversation

 

At The Conversation we believe that giving educators the space and time to talk about teaching and learning is essential.

The Conversation is a response to didactic modes of teacher development. It is a response to the commoditisation of CPD and an attempt to encourage authentic experiences for education professionals. It is a response to the frustration of modern and perpetual modes of relation and seeks to promote direct, unmediated communication between educators. When we assert our irreducible individuality, we call forward qualitative richness into our professional situations. It is an attempt to encourage the construction of situations; moments of life deliberately built for the purpose of reawakening and pursuing authentic desires and interests, experiencing the feeling of life and adventure, and the liberation of our everyday lives as educators.

At The Conversation we believe that giving educators the space and time to talk about teaching and learning is essential.

Conversations can generate ideas, inform pedagogies and inspire reform. A conversation implies a measure of equality and that listening and sharing without limit, without judgement, without inhibition can lead to incredible things. Conversations allow us to explore ideas, to challenge and ask questions of ourselves, each other and the systems we work in. They inspire us to create, analyse and  evaluate ideas. They provoke us to engage intellectually with the latest research and make links between theories and praxes. Conversations can lift us, excite us and challenge us. So join in the conversation!
