Great Teaching Series
We know that great teaching is the key to improving outcomes and we are now at a moment in education where, as a lot of the intent and planning work has been completed, now is the time to revisit the actual delivery in the classroom. To support this, VNET and Norfolk Research School have collaborated to produce a series on Great Teaching for both teachers and leaders.
For teachers - sessions led by Dr Niki Kaiser (Director, Norfolk Research School) and Rachael Wilson (Deputy Director, Norfolk Research School)
- Great Teaching: Cognitive Science and Memory. This session will support you to develop research-informed approaches to help your pupils learn and remember more. We’ll move beyond learning as simply remembering facts for longer, and reflect on how we can encourage deeper thinking and meaning making.
- Great Teaching: Metacognition and Scaffolding. This session will support you to develop research-informed approaches to help your pupils develop independence and achieve more. We’ll review practical tools from the EEF, and reflect on how we can support our pupils to understand and do more, drawing on the resources and expertise that we already have.
- Great Teaching: Formative Assessment/Questions with a Maths Focus. This session will support you to develop research-informed approaches to refine teacher understanding of how
to use effective questioning and Formative Assessment to accurately and effectively adapt teaching to pupils’ needs. We’ll review key Guidance from the EEF and NCETM, and look at practical ways to use this to minimise gaps forming and really move children on within and across lessons.
For middle and senior leaders - session led by Maria Curry (VNET Associate and ex-HMI)
- Great Teaching in a Knowledge-Led Curriculum. Is delivering a knowledge-led curriculum having an impact on teaching practice in your school? Are you clear on how the teaching is affecting the impact of that curriculum? This session is designed to help senior and middle leaders who are working to improve classroom practice.
