About the Conference
This is the second gathering of Teachers New to Boys’ Schools in Australia and New Zealand. The Scots College proudly hosts this important meeting once again. This conference aims to equip teachers new to boys’ schools with the vision, tools, and connections they need to profoundly shape the lives of young men. The conference will feature keynote addresses by leading education researchers in fields such as motivation and engagement, psychology, and character development. Attendees will also find plenty of time to discuss shared practice in stage-specific groups and participate in elective workshops on a range of issues, including classroom management, differentiation, and building your professional networks.
Who Should Attend?
The conference holds value for both new teachers and more experienced teachers who are in their first years in a boys’ school at the primary, middle, and senior school levels. Additionally, we invite new hires who would benefit from this intensive conference focus. We also welcome master teachers and school leaders who may have special responsibilities for faculty development or mentoring of new teachers. The conference will provide a safe place to explore concerns, challenges, and successes. We hope teachers attending will feel informed, affirmed, and recharged in their work of inspiring young men.
