Education show attracts top speakers

8th September 2006 at 01:00
The annual SETT show in Glasgow is expected to attract some 5,000 teachers and other education professionals to its annual festival of learning on September 20 and 21 - and The TESS will be there.

For the first time, we are staging a special lecture aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at new and student teachers.

This will take the form of a discussion involving one of Scotland's most experienced headteachers, Gordon Mackenzie of Balwearie High in Kirkcaldy, and Jane Harrison, a newly-qualified teacher who won the George Gray award this year for the best BEd final-year thesis.

Among the leading thinkers and practitioners taking part in the festival will be Dame Marie Stubbs, the Glasgow-born head noted for turning round the London school where headteacher Philip Lawrence was murdered; Terry Dozier, former adviser to the Clinton administration in the US; and Edward de Bono, regarded as the father of "lateral thinking".
