Learning expo: educators go back to school

2010-08-27 00:00

WHILE little teaching is taking place in many of South Africa’s classrooms because of the public sector strike, education experts will spend time next month talking about its effects and addressing some of the problems of the profession.

The Education Week Convention and Learning Expo takes place from September 28 to 30 in Johannesburg.

About 1 000 educationists are expected to attend.

Graeme Bloch, former education specialist at the Development Bank of Southern Africa, will lead the panel discussions. Other speakers are Gauteng Education MEC Barbara Creecy and Marius Fransman, chairperson of the parliamentary committee on higher education and training. The expo will offer workshops, and teachers will have the chance to trial the latest learning materials and technologies.
