Annual Conference

The Modern Studies Association (MSA) Annual Conference is the highlight of the MSA’s calendar. The most recent Annual Conference was held in the Scottish Parliament on Saturday 2 November 2019.

The event started at 10am (with registration open from 9am) and ran until 3.15pm, with a variety of topic-specific keynote addresses and hands on workshops that aimed to provide Modern Studies Teachers with a great CLPL experience.

As part of this event, we were delighted to that Conference was held in the chamber of the Scottish Parliament, with keynote speakers focusing on the 20th anniversary of devolved governance in Scotland. Thereafter, each attendee attended two seminars, with one being the opportunity to tour the building and speak to colleagues in the Parliament’s Education and Outreach team. The day’s programme also included lunch and an opportunity to meet stallholders, who offered a range of different teaching materials and offer the opportunity to form professional connections that enhance professional understanding, as well as learning and teaching in our classrooms.
