Enhancing Teacher Effectiveness = Improving Student Learning

The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) will hold its fall conference on teaching and learning entitled “Enhancing Teacher Effectiveness = Improving Student Learning” from October 28-30, 2011, in Las Vegas, United States.

The conference aims to explain how schools can support teacher effectiveness in a balanced way that addresses the factors that improve student learning. It is open to professionals aiming to increase their instructional effectiveness by discussing topics such as researched-based teaching and evaluating practices.

Global Education News Hub

Though I have thought about it for some time, thanks to a colleague in The States, I have finally produced the Global Education News Hub. It’s still in its infancy and is very much a work in progress. The Hub is a collection of RSS Feeds and news articles from some of the most interesting sources of education news and blogs from around the world. My intention is to provide a one stop shop or a first port of call for anyone looking for the latest updates from their own country or internationally.

I hope to expand the Hub and so if you are aware of any interesting news sources or if you have a blog that you’d like included, please do get in touch and let me know. Likewise, if you have any suggestions to improve the Hub.

The Hub can be found at http://www.netvibes.com/leeandrewdunn

Please retweet/share this article throughout your networks – the more visitors that use the Hub the better it will become.
