'The Importance of Education'
The first TEAN conference took place at Glasgow Caledonian University on May 21 2010, attracting a wide audience of delegates and presenters from across the four countries of the UK. Professor Pamela Gillies, Principal and Vice Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian welcomed delegates to the conference and then Antony Finn, Chief Executive of the General Teaching Council of Scotland opened the conference. The keynote address was given by Professor John Gardner from Queen's University, Belfast who delivered a thought-provoking and entertaining talk on the conference theme, 'The Importance of Education'.
The range of presentations, round table presentations and workshops was of very high quality and much appreciated by delegates who thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks are due to our main sponsors: ESCalate and the the General Teaching Council for Scotland, as well as all the exhibitors, administrators and colleagues who helped make the day so well received. The conference was a great success and the next conference is already in the planning stages, so watch the website for details!
