Enquiry into What is Effective Teaching
The aim of this programme is to enable teachers and school leaders to use evidence about effective teaching and learning to inform the strategies that are utilised in their classroom or school, in order to develop excellent practice and ensure that all pupils achieve excellent outcomes.
The programme will run over a series of session. Sessions will use leading writing and research to examine effective teaching and learning, considering the implications for classroom practice. This will include how pupils learn and how memory works according to findings from cognitive psychology, common myths about learning, and the principles for instruction advocated by leading research. Participants will have an opportunity to evaluate their own practice and how this can be improved. Finally, the programme will consider how to become a research-engaged teacher or school going forward.
