Q. How close is the school to Cologne Airport?

The school in Cologne is located on the outskirts of the city, in the leafy suburban village of Rondorf. The suburb is well-connected to the city’s transport network, with regular buses linking Rondorf to the city centre and central train station, as well as to other districts in the south and west of the city. It is only a few stops to connect to the city’s efficient tram network. The Cologne-South motorway junction is only 5 minutes’ drive away, linking to the city’s orbital route and the main Cologne-Bonn motorway. The airport is only 20 minutes’ drive from the school. Rondorf is a self-contained district with all local services at hand. Areas in the south and west of the city are among the most desirable, with proximity to the river, university and good transport links making an attractive mix of peaceful, family oriented spaces and more lively areas.

Here is a map with directions.

Q. Do you have any recommended hotels?

A. To make the most of your experience, we suggest you stay in central Cologne. There are a whole range of hotels to suit every taste and price range and you are best consulting TripAdvisor or to find something to suit your exact requirements!

Q. Will there be a live feed of the conference?

A. We will be using the hashtag #pracped18 on Twitter where delegates can share the ideas and resources they are being presented with. You can follow us on Twitter at @pedagogies.

An incredibly wide ranging, thought provoking and - most importantly - useful conference. As an international teacher it was particularly useful to meet and chat with other overseas teachers face-to-face. In terms of the conference sessions, everything I attended delivered something that either I could implement in my classroom or that got me to reflect more critically on what I already do. The huge range of available sessions meant I could mix a focus on my subject area with some of the broader conceptual sessions that took place.

The Practical Pedagogies conference is like no other because it brings together educators from across the globe. It offers a eclectic mix of thought provoking, practical and inspiring workshops, led by an equally varied selection of people who have effective teaching and learning slap bang in the middle of their thoughts. It has formed a vital part of my CPD, and I defy anyone to attend and not be challenged and changed.

The Practical Pedagogies conference stands out from the other conferences due to the unique set up of having fellow conference members providing the sessions. These sessions are relevant and provide hands-on techniques that are useful for all teachers of any age. The family-like atmosphere created by Russel allows all conference members to socialise and interact with fellow educators from around the world. The money saved on this very affordable conference can then be used on the pub crawl where the truly deep pedagogical discussions take place!
