It is with deep regret that I have to cancel the Unplug’d Scotland event.
Registration numbers have been below 20 and with a few people not being able to make it, it seems that going ahead with less than 20 people isn’t a good use of time and resources.
I’m not sure why registration numbers haven’t been higher. Perhaps timing of the April holiday, perhaps a remote location, perhaps a lack of understanding of what a retreat to discuss and really unpack education today is really all about. Perhaps just a lack of me having the right contacts to spread the idea with not being in UK very long.
I won’t pretend I’m not horribly disappointed, I was really looking forward to spending a weekend away with some of the most amazing people I know, but it seems it is really not meant to be.
On Monday I’ll be contacting the Firbush Center hoping to get a refund on the deposit of the center. I’ll pass along any deposits/sponsorship funding paid by people at that point, it is all still sitting in the paypal account.
Thanks to everyone for their support.
Education in Scotland is a crossroads. As things move and evolve we need to disconnect and reflect to make sure we know what is really important as educators.
Unplug’d Scotland is a Retreat to go to the beautiful Loch Tay to get away, write, collaborate, be active, and build relationships with Scottish Educators from all aspects and levels of learning.
Join us April 6-8 as we Unplug from the pace of life and Plug back into what really matters in education.
