School’s in for summer
Our spring workshop this year brought the first hints of returning to CPD in conventional in-person formats – not that the switch online over the past couple of years hasn’t brought certain benefits of its own. Our features in this newsletter show that, ever since that spring event, ScotNetters have been more eager than ever to engage in learning, especially with some travel into the bargain.
With that in mind, there is a real focus in this issue on events of the traditional variety – most importantly, the wonderful weekend in Shetland. To mark ScotNet’s most ambitious summer workshop yet, we have a whole clutch of ScotNetters reporting on their experiences of the workshop itself and beyond (and don’t forget to check out the pictures). You can also read all about Ali’s and Alison’s visits to the ITI Conference in Brighton – about as far from Shetland as it’s possible to go in the UK! Some of us have remained closer to home: my own report of the spring workshop only required an Edinburgh bus, while Paul stayed in with a good book.
Wherever you are, I hope you’ve had a lovely summer – and of course, switching off your brain for a while is allowed too.
The mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but wood that needs igniting.
