National Restorative Practice Conference for Education.
Our CONNECT will take place in conjunction with the Education Department of Maynooth University (led by Dr Anthony Malone) on 25th March 2017. We are very excited about the potential of this to help Restorative Practice gain further traction in the educational arena and to highlight how it can facilitate the relationships and wellbeing that are essential for effective teaching and learning. This is a cross-sectoral event that welcomes teachers and educators from primary and post-primary as well as student-teachers and students. We are delighted to announce that the wonderful Dr Belinda Hopkins will be the keynote speaker on the day.
The day will also include workshops of which you will be able to choose two depending on your area of interest:
The journey begins… Getting started with RP. Faclitated by Michelle Stowe and Claire Matthews of ConnectRP.
Teachers sharing their RP journey; the practitioner’s voice.
Student and parent voice; RP and school community.
Research 1: RP supporting student-teachers; the PME experience in MU. Facilitated by Dr Anthony Malone.
Research 2: RP research and sharing of theory and practice in education.
Proactive Circles. Facilitated by Dr Belinda Hopkins
School leaders walking the talk; sharing practice and vision.
In the afternoon we will be coming together for a ConnectMEET to share even more ideas and practice! This will be quite informal and an opportunity for people to give an insight into what is working for them in terms of their RP journey. If you would be interested in taking part and sharing for either 2 or 5 minutes please fill in your details here.
We look forward to meeting you for what promises to be a most enjoyable and inspiring day for Restorative Practice and education!
Please share this with anyone that you feel may be interested. I would love to see you there, sharing how we can all
…be the change we want to see in the world..
