An Andrew Old Round UpMay 13, 2014
Apologies for the lack of blogposts recently. This has, in part, been down to a fair number of other activities and opportunities that have come up since I ceased to be anonymous (none of them in any way likely to make me any money). I’ll take this opportunity to advertise some of the things I have done/will be doing.
- I know this isn’t new, and my contribution is available online here, but I have written the foreword for Progressively Worse by Robert Peal.
- I wrote an article about Improving Teacher Quality for the Fabian Society website.
- My views on Performance Related Pay can be found in the online version of the Guardian today (but not the print edition) here.
- I will be speaking on “The Teacher As Expert” at a Teach Meet in Stafford on the 9th June. Details here (there’s still a small number of speaking slots available).
- I am on a panel at the La Salle Education maths conference (for both primary and secondary teachers) on the 14th June. Still a handful of free tickets available here.
- I should be speaking, on another panel, at the Wellington Festival of Education on the 20th June.
- I have written a contribution for Don’t Change the Light Bulbs, edited by Rachel Jones, which should be out in September and is available for pre-order now.
- I should be doing a talk on “How to have a rational argument about education” at ResearchED 2014 in London on the 6th September. Tickets and details available here.
As for future projects, well … if you need a maths teacher (preferably part-time) for September, for a school in the West Midlands, please let me know.
