Event description

Description

Given the nature of U.K. schooling for parents, pupils and teachers during the coronavirus pandemic, I am offering online professional development for teachers to help share my knowledge of teaching and learning research - on a shoestring budget to bring in a small residue income at a difficult time for us all - to help connect the online, teaching community.




What will you learn? It is my belief that learning walks are dangerous and in their current format, a waste of time.

This 30-minute webinar/training session (plus 10 minutes question and answer) aims to meet demands and help other teachers learn more about reducing observational bias in lesson observations and how you can adapt the ideas back in your place of work in terms of its theory and application at a departmental/whole-school level.

The claim: To reliable evaluate teaching and learning.

Why? When you asked a room full of teachers, “Hands up who works in a position of leadership which gives you the permission to observe other teachers?” you will see a large number of hands raised. Taking this further: “Keep your hands up if you have received any formal training?” The numbers of ‘hands up’ tend to drop dramatically. When you then ask if anyone left has a formal qualification in observational practice, all the hands in any room disappear!

In a profession with seeks research-led methods, and in an industry which lacks sufficient time and money, it is critical that school leaders support teachers to the best of their ability when everyone’s time is precious… it is therefore essential we do things better. I want to show you how...

How? This webinar offers a teacher training process to help teachers understand lesson observation better from an academic and researcher lens. As a result, evaluating the quality of teaching and learning will improve, classroom doors will open and teachers will develop as a result.

Who? This training is perfect for experienced teachers and school leaders who wish to explore cognitive science and discover how to instil action-research approaches to teaching and learning at a classroom level.
