Teaching and learning in the spotlight at ReadTL16

Staff from across Activate Learning and beyond enjoyed a day of professional development at the group’s third teaching and learning conference.

ReadTL16 took place at Reading College on Wednesday (6 July). The event included a chance to share ideas and get inspiration from Activate Learning practitioners and external guests.

Workshops sessions included Poundland Pedagogy, the brain and why it matters, digital skills, connecting education with industry and tips for embedding English and maths.


Delegates were the first to receive the new Learning Philosophy in Action brochure, showcasing examples of good practice from across the group, as well as a series of learning philosophy postcards with links to digital resources.

Comments shared on twitter throughout the day included:

  • @NeilBardo: #ReadTL16 digital skills for employment good session, an eye opener
  • @KatiaCole1: #ReadTL16 Great turn out and super enthusiastic participation in Active Teaching Activities and Connecting with a Bang!
  • @penncheryl: #ReadTL16 Really engaging Action Research Projects with 2nd year PGCE students. Well done and thanks @Activate_Learn


The event was the third teaching and learning conference to be hosted by the group and around 160 delegates attended throughout the day.
