Academy Conferences is based in the UK and helps students and teachers to approach education as a worthy end in itself. We do this by running Gifted and Talented Masterclass conferences for students and teachers in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, going beyond the curriculum to offer a connected and critical overview of academic subjects and the big ideas they examine. Our events are run in partnership with The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University and are delivered by specialists in their field. This year’s Junior Gifted and Talented day is facilitated by Julie Arliss who is an international educator of gifted students.

Critical, Collaborative and Creative Thinking seminar

15 November 2017 9:00 am - 17 November 2017 3:00 pm

Location: Auckland - St Cuthberts Wednesday 15th November Wellington- Marsden College Thursday 16th November Christchurch- TBA Friday 17th November

Gifted and talented students recognise the importance of critical, collaborate and creative thinking skills. Recent research provides G&T educators with evidence that these skills are substantially improved where students participate in a short weekly period of philosophical communities of inquiry. When this is done more often the impact on student learning can be profound and extensive.  The seminar is designed to answer the following questions:

  • How can we explicitly develop students’ critical thinking skills both in the classroom and in the co-curricular program at my school? 
  • What is a philosophical community of inquiry and how can my school develop a whole school approach to democracy in the classroom without forcing teachers to do something they do not want to do?
  • What is a Philosothon and how can my school develop a climate where collaborative thinking is celebrated and fostered?
  • What is an Ethics Olympiad and how can it provide opportunities for students to engage with other students around the world about important ethical issues?
  • I need interactive and dynamic resources I can use in the classroom and share with my school colleagues. Can you help?
