The Second International Conference on Pedagogies and Learning – meanings under the microscope has been convened to place pedagogy under the microscope as never before, to engage you in identifying your personal pedagogy, examining how reflective practice can assist you, understanding and applying practical critical pedagogy, constructing pedagogical meaning through metaphor, in a community of practice. This is your invitation – to question, to reflect, to illuminate, to confirm, make adjustments and transform the way we conceptualise and talk about pedagogical practice today. Be on the ground floor, move into this pedagogical learning circle and tell us what you see; share the metaphor and the meaning. The conference program includes paper presentations, workshops and snapshots of pedagogy applicable to all education sectors and aims to be cross-disciplinary.
