The Engaged Learner will provide teachers with an amazing collection of resources and strategies that can be used immediately within the classroom allowing teachers to deliver more creative, effective and outstanding lessons

During the day we will be looking at:

  • An array of bellwork and starter activities to inspire and engage learners from the moment they enter the classroom;
  • Time saving, high impact and easy to use PowerPoint games suitable for any subject.
  • Plenaries allowing teachers to  effectively review student progress against the learning objectives;
  • Questioning techniques to expand and deepen student learning
  • Strategies for whole-class, individual, and group-work including activities to promote collaborative learning
  • Winning techniques to promote higher order thinking and independent learning

 

Evidence underpinning this approach

All resources and approaches have been actively used in classrooms across the UK, UAE and Far East Asia. Tutor2u have consistently received positive feedback via direct email and twitter on how the resources have been used and have helped to enliven lessons and promote a positive learning environment.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Success of the event is constantly monitored throughout the day through discussion with delegates. Following the event delegates are encouraged to contact the team directly to evaluate the event and materials provided.

Follow-up activities and support

The tutor2u team are happy to offer support to attendees as required. The tutor2u Linkedin group and twitter feed (@tutor2u) provide an excellent platform for collaboration and sharing best practice.
