Landscapes Peaks Perspectives
A conference at its best is a place where like minds can come together, where ideas are spread and where inspiration grows. Landscapes: Peaks. Perspectives. was one of those conferences.
Drawing inspiration from the jagged line of mountains jutting up from behind Wakatipu High School, the COATE team put together a line up that held both fun and big ideas at its core.
Toby Manhire fed our egos in a delightful treatise into the necessity of English teachers, those vanguards in the war on bullshit (read it on page 14), the writers’ panel went deep on creative practice (tidbits of their work and reflections are on page…) and Cathy Wiley and Wesley Imms explored the big issues teachers are facing in their workplaces.
