The Educational Colloquium and Continuing Professional Development Programme 2017/18


The Educational Colloquium of the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde, and the West of Scotland invites you to participate in a series of presentations/workshops/ discussions in our new winter programme.  The programme (See details below) is designed for individuals from all sectors – nurseries, schools, colleges, universities with an interest in topical subjects in education and related disciplines.  We think it represents the best value CPD in Scotland.  The Colloquium is a registered CPD provider and the full programme counts as 10 hours of CPD, 2 hours per meeting.  CPD certificates are available at all meetings.  If you would like to find out what it is like and meet a great group of people just come along to a meeting, without charge…and bring a friend!   We start all meetings with a little free hospitality and you will be made most welcome…and we will gently encourage you to join the Colloquium.  The Chair of the Colloquium for 2016/17 is Professor Donald Gillies, Dean of the School of Education, University of the West of Scotland.  


You can join by just coming along to a meeting or by contacting Margaret McFarlane at the e-mail address below.
