This is a message from Dunne Edelstein from Quality Life with regards to the Inspired Teachers’ Conference in Johannesburg that is coming up later this year…
“We’re very excited to announce that the Inspired Teachers Conference, powered by QualityLife Company, is bringing internationally recognised Dr Christopher Emdin – a science advocate who uses hip-hop to make better teachers – to South Africa this year.
“Dr. Christopher Emdin, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology at Teachers College, Columbia University will give the keynote address at the 5th Annual Inspired Teachers Conference on August 18, 2015 in Johannesburg.
“For more information on Dr Chris Emdin, go here. You’ll also find his TED talk here, but if you really want to learn what teachers must know to create magic, (and what rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday church services have in common) you have to sign up here here!
This event will sell out in record time so PLEASE sign up quickly or risk serious FOMO. We look forward to seeing you at what promises to be a very exciting event. Please note that the date of the conference has had to move to 18 August to fit in with Dr Emdin’s schedule. To load the conference to your diary, click on the appropriate link below:
“Another plus is that we are now able to extend the deadline for speaking submissions. Bear in mind that this conference has been created specially to celebrate the commitment of the remarkable teachers who are shaping young leaders on a daily basis, often in difficult circumstances. InspiredTeachers recognizes and learns from the teachers who know how to light up a classroom; shares leadership lessons and inspiration with our teaching community and focuses on celebrating excellence in teaching. To submit your proposal please send it to me here: Dunne, deadline date for submissions is 22 May. (video and/or audio clips are always an advantage to give us an idea of your speaking style).
This all sounds very exciting! I believe there is a Cape Town conference in the pipeline as well…
