Gareth was one of the speakers at #BrewEdChester in 2018. His main interests are anxiety, stress and emotional regulation. He wrote a blog reflecting in his first experience of #BrewEd. We have given a flavour of his blog here. Follow the link at the bottom of the page to read the whole of Gareth’s blog on his website.
My greatest praise for #BrewED is that it stimulated thinking in areas that I had previously overlooked, and will be a thread in many blog posts and other work to come. What I first presumed would be just a great afternoon with a few pints turned out to be one of the most significant events of my career.
If you get the chance to attend a future #BrewEd event, or at the very least something that shares the same commitment to grassroots professional development, I strongly recommend that you do.
The opportunities we all have, as teachers, support staff, anyone involved in education, to develop our practice are greater in number and quality than when I started my career, and #BrewEd may be the sign of even better things to come: I’ll drink to that!
