One of my favourite aspects of working in education is giving up my weekends and presenting at Grassroots Conferences.
I would like to think my workshops are truly unique. My starting point is writing a session that I would love to attend. I don't have to support exam syllabuses or even worry if anyone turns up.
I think the last conference I did I wanted to share Dan's Prime Climb with 40 teachers, Dan helped me out with some great ideas. I then changed my mind... I wanted 40 teachers to play Prime Climb. This still has an element of sense until you realise I'd already written a different workshop weeks before and I was going to scrap it and personally make 20 Prime Climb set with a couple of day before the conference.
