National Teaching & Learning Conference 2010 - day 2 afternoon

My keynote came up after lunch where I presented on 'Belonging, Becoming and Being: Learning from narratives of apprentices and trades tutors. My main objective was to provide background on concepts of vocational identity formation and to provide the metaphors of belonging, becoming and being as metaphors for forming a shared understanding for teachers to work towards processes which will enhance learning for students. 

After afternoon tea, open conference session with two streams - teaching and learning and elearning.
The teaching and learning stream had groups working on teaching large classes, motivating students, managing assessment for learning. In elearning there are groups discussing eportfolios, social networking, misuse of technology, evaluating confidence with digital literacy and how to embed literacy in elearning.
