Recently, I attended a conference organised for the teaching staff (including learning support assistants) of a teaching schools alliance, totalling over 900 delegates.
The venue was an international conference centre in the town where the lead school was based.
I decided to spend the day observing some of the talks taking place around me in an attempt to identify the discourse structure that underpin the day’s programme of professional development. I was trying to find out what the discourse structure revealed about this new form of CPD organised by and for teaching schools alliances.
