Festival fever

4th June 2010 at 01:00

Since registration for the Scottish Learning Festival opened two weeks ago, 1,000 delegates have signed up and others are encouraged to do so fast, to avoid disappointment of overbooked seminars. This year's festival (September 22-23) is focusing on Curriculum for Excellence and any ideas, good practice and resources that can help teachers to implement it. In addition to Education Secretary Michael Russell and keynote speakers Eric Booth, Richard Gerver and Sugata Mitra, Stephen Heppell returns with a session on "Our Futures", in which he will discuss the future of learning with pupils from schools across Scotland. The Scottish Arts Council's Travelling Gallery will be there for both days, and eight local authorities will showcase their work from a Citizenship through Visual Art project.
