a. the conference fee, including full board accommodation for two nights in Oxford (equivalent to £250) b. a contribution to travel costs (up to £85).

Initial orientation to the conference will be provided to successful applicants. Teachers attending an academic conference for the first time may appreciate having identified colleagues to attend some sessions with them and talk the papers through afterwards. It is expected that successful applicants will negotiate the particular kinds of support they would appreciate with us. This year, confirmed keynote speakers are:

  • David Hansen, Teachers' College, Columbia University, New York
  • Jan Derry, Institute of Education, University College, London

Applicants will be expected to:

  1. Attend the conference in full (except where agreed in advance with the Society, for example, due to teaching commitments) and
  2. After the conference write a short reflective blog piece for the PEGSB website/ a social media forum used by teachers based on their experience of attending the conference or one aspect of it.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel of members of the PESGB Executive Committee. Members of the panel will provide brief feedback on request in cases where applications are unsuccessful but reserve the right not to engage in lengthy correspondence.

Notes:

  1. Successful applicants will be expected to pay the conference fee in advance, sign a written declaration confirming their status as a full-time serving teacher and to attend the conference in full, unless special arrangements have been agreed in advance with the PESGB Executive.
