21st-century theme for advisers' gathering

23rd February 2001 at 00:00
Educational advisers will devote their annual conference on March 2 and 3 at the Hilton Hotel, Bellshill to the theme of learning and teaching in the 21st century.

Keynote addresses will be given by Jack McConnell, Education Minister, Mike Baughan, chief executive of Learning and Teaching Scotland, and Professor Donnie McLeod of Northern College, who will look at social inclusion.

Of particular interest no doubt to members of the Association of Educational Advisers in Scotland will be a report on the experiences of the first local authorities-East Dunbartonshire and Highland - to have their educaton services inspected.

Details of the conference are available from its organiser, Tommy Doherty, North Lanarkshire Council education department, Kildonan Street, Coatbridge ML5 3LF (tel. 01236 812222) A developing aspect of learning and teaching - pupil participation - is the subject of a conference at Carronvale House, Larbert on March 16. It is organised by the Scottish Schools Ethos Network in conjunction with Falkirk Council.

Details from Kate Sneddon, Professional Development Centre, Moray House Institute, Edinburgh University, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AQ (tel. 0131 651 6398)
