Date and Time: 
Sunday, 15 April 2012 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Bob Sanderson

A teacher’s philosophy of learning and teaching are at the core of what he or she does or aims to do in the classroom. Our philosophies evolve over time, and are so fundamental to what we are and do as teachers that they may be taken for granted or go unnoticed unless periodically made explicit and reviewed.

Speaker: 
Andrew Boon

When conducting research, it may be easy to take a wrong turn and be uncertain of how best to proceed with our individual projects. And yet, if provided with opportunities to articulate our jumbled thoughts in a supportive and non-judgmental environment to a fellow peer who is willing to listen and understand them, we may begin to see things more clearly, discover new perspectives on our research, and find a direction forward.
