Code: AAT/18/12 Evidence-based practice to secure quality teaching and learning (Cancelled)

This programme is designed to support the development of a culture of evidence-based practice across the Trust. There are two key sources of evidence that can help to secure consistently outstanding professional practice. Firstly, practitioners testing, analysing, reviewing and evaluating their own practice. Secondly, increasing awareness and application of research carried out by bodies such as the Sutton Trust, the Educational Endowment Foundation, the NFER and the range of work done by university departments. The programme will be action based i.e. participants will carry out two projects; a school-based research project focused on improving the quality of teaching and learning in their own school and secondly compiling a review of research and publications focusing on agreed themes in order to develop a resource to support evidence-based practice across the Trust. It is intended that the research projects will be published in a variety of media and that accreditation by a university will be available.

Code: AAT/18/70 Crafting Teaching and Learning

The purpose of each unit is to focus on a particular area of teaching and learning pedagogy that is at the heart of progress and attainment. Each unit will bring teachers together to discuss their craft by sharing strategies and examples. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss research around teaching and learning and explore a variety of practical approaches and shape these to their own context. Most importantly, all participants will have the opportunity to share their learning and influence practice back in their own schools. The Crafting Teaching and Learning sessions act as a stimulus for academies or teams of teachers who are looking to develop teaching and learning policy and practice in their own contexts. Each event is designed with academy leaders to create a bespoke session that fits into an academy’s directed professional development time.
