Sharing Lab

The Sharing Lab zone will host a number of informal sessions which put peer-to-peer learning and support at their heart, and everyone’s invited to contribute!

We have selected the topics, but you have ultimate control over the content: bring along resources, or brief presentations, and share your ideas with other delegates – or simply come in the spirit of enquiry, to learn from the expertise of your peers.

Our aim is to get you chatting, fired up on new ideas, and excited to share what’s working well in your teaching practice, and to discuss all of this in the company of like-minded practitioners. Take away an idea, a new business contact, a new new resource or a new friend!

Expert hosts will be on hand for all the music and drama sessions, to get the conversation going. Look out for them on your arrival at the Sharing Lab.

If you’re interested to share an idea, choose your slot from the below topics and fill in this quick form here. We’ll be in touch!
