Session summaries -

Session 1. Teaching from the Front

In these days of social distancing, 'teaching from the front' is becoming the norm. What does this look like in practice? Come and join us as we look at a range of tips and techniques that can be employed to facilitate learning in the classroom.

Session 2 - Excellence in Teaching -  Rosenshine in action

What does good teaching look and feel like?  Rosenshine’s principles offers us some understanding of the approaches to teaching and learning that have proved most effective.  Some actions to implement to take away with you on effective classroom practice.

Session 3 - Wellbeing and Personal |Resilience

This session will look at how we can all improve our work life balance, identify and reduce stress within ourselves and develop strategies for coping

Session 4 - Innovations in teaching and learning

As professionals, we are constantly developing and learning from our own experiences and others.  What is the current thinking on teaching and learning and supporting student progress? How do we tap in to the latest ideas and research and what networks can we develop to help us grow.

Session 5 - Formative and Summative assessment

What effective strategies can we put in place to help with both formative and summative feedback? What can assessment tell you about learning and how do we respond?  How do we as teachers analyse summative data to give an informed idea of student progress and what actions should we take now and in the future

Session 6 - Looking forward

Hopefully this is the start of a long and exciting career in education.  What are the pathways to further responsibility and leadership and what might be your next steps into your future
