OverviewWould you like to begin teaching with confidence, have well-organised learning sessions and feel connected to your people?
In this community-based learning session you will join with other new educators to investigate an effective way to plan your sessions and use Learning Intentions, to actively involve your learners: they will certainly be active rather than observers!!
We will focus on ways to establish a successful, learning community that shares clear expectations and welcomes all members. We will also share interesting ways to structure your spaces in ways that encourage learning.
We will reflect on a good balance of ‘educator talk’ and learner involvement – getting this right can be tricky!
We will also investigate ways of connecting with your teaching teams to ensure that you are supported in your workplace.
As part of each of our sessions together we will plan forward, looking at possible challenges and ways that we might overcome them using good practice. Bring your challenges along to the session and we will think of possibilities together.
We will complete our session with an innovative opportunity for Reflective Practice that you can use with your learners and in conclusion answer any burning questions you may have!
