Workshop on the principles and practice of collaborative learning, focusing on the impact of teaching students how to talk – and think – together, developing the language and strategies for independent thinking.

Day One will enable you to:

  • make connections between ‘dialogue’ and the most effective teaching

  • and learning practice;

  • accurately describe to a colleague three ways to improve the

  • effectiveness of student talk in the role of teacher as mediator; and

  • identify ways in which collaborative learning tools can enhance

  • learning and be ready to trial a dialogue strategy in your classroom.

Day Two

Workshop on the principles and practice of collaborative learning, focussing on developing a structure for talk, which deepens learning through use of dialogue tools and a community of enquiry.

Day Two will enable you to:

  • identify examples of cumulative, disputational and exploratory talk, and explain these to a colleague;

  • plan an action to develop exploratory talk in your own classroom;

  • take part in a community of enquiry and actively reflect on your thinking and learning; and

  • have a clear plan to develop a culture of dialogue in your context based on shared reasoning and a shared set of ground-rules.
