What does research say about effective professional learning?
On Saturday 8th July 2017, Tom Sherrington and I will be piloting ‘Just Great Teaching’: a thought-provoking and practical training day for teachers and school leaders. Some of the issues to be tackled on the day include: How to plan lessons that build on good practice? Ideas for differentiation, stretch and challenge, as well as ideas for effective feedback to help reduce workload.
We will explore the most up-to-date ideas from research and practice to re-boot your thinking so you can return to school, equipped with strategies to use immediately in your own classroom. We will also give you the tools to deliver the training yourself to share with your own colleagues.
If the event is a success, we hope to arrange more – once every half-term – around the U.K. So, if you can’t make this one, do let us know if you are interested in us organsing a similar event at a location near you. Leave your comments below.
To make the training day as useful as possible, we suggest that you focus on a particular unit of work and, if possible, a particular group of students. It may help you to bring some information about the scheme of work you are using and information about the students to support your action planning. For example, class data.
