    Stopping by to say thank you for putting together such a nice, concise intro to the work of Robert Kegan (http://www.shiftingthinking.org/?page_id=449). This site is very helpful.

    Admin :

    Should the latest comments in the blogs appear at the top or the bottom as they do now. What do others think?

    Latest comments now appear at the top.
    This makes it easier to get to the latest comment without scrolling down to the bottom of the page. Some blogs have lots of comments and this made scrolling down to the bottom of the page a bit cumbersome.

    Okay, I have permission from my school to come down, but no PD budget left so I’m now planning cake stalls and raffles to fund my conference fee! :) So I’ll make an effort to make myself known at a break. I hope you guys are wearing fluoro tee-shirts or something to make it easy to meet you!

    Hi Sandy – wow, that sounds great and how exciting to hear you’ve found us! Do you think *you* will be able to come to our conference? If so that might be the best-fastest-most strategic way to forge some connections between your plans, and what we’re working on, and the people who do attend the conference. At the moment our heads and hands are quite deeply occupied with getting this exciting-yet-complex-and-emergent conference organised, not to mention building up the shifting thinking community (care to join?. But if you could grab us during a lunch or morning tea break at the conference I’m sure we could get through a lot of ideas pretty quickly…!
    If you can’t possibly make it, we can think about some other possibilities :)

    Having recently returned to teach in NZ, I have just discovered the wonders possible via the new curriculum and have decided to create a one-day PD day in Auckland at the end of this year to try and encourage and build networks between teachers that are yet to realise what becomes possible for education and for our students with the direction of the new curriculum. I’ve just stumbled across this site and conference, and wonder if anyone is interested in talking further? I would like what I’m trying to set up to be complimentary to this conference, I hope that it might reach teachers that might not be interested or able to go to Wellington.

    I still think the bottom is best, esp as we have quite long comments on some of them…. but you can always just experiment and put it the other way for a couple days and see how it goes!!
