Freedom Needs Boundaries – using the Professional Standards for Lecturers in Scotland’s Colleges

Calendar icon

Our first virtual event for College Lecturers aims to stimulate professional thinking, discussion, and national networking.

The event will take place online on Wednesday 20 March at 4 pm and is open to those who are registered with GTC Scotland in Further Education.

We will be joined by Dr Lou Mycroft, a Further Education changemaker and social entrepreneur. She will introduce the Values Line, a way of developing long-term sustainable change in a short-term world. Dr Mycroft will discuss themes such as using the Professional Standards for active enquiry in the college teaching context, using the professional values intentionally in your day-to-day practice and collaboratively connecting and thinking with others in professional learning communities.
