This workshop will help teachers to optimise student interest, motivation and achievement in MFL. Our course supports teachers who are looking for fresh ideas and how to increase GCSE uptake by introducing motivating and challenging active learning strategies to the curriculum.

Active learning in MFL links innovative teaching strategies to a strong academic foundation. This course can be targeted at KS 2,3,4 or 5.

This 90-minute workshop will provide teachers with a wealth of active learning ideas and strategies which can be easily implemented and added to any curriculum.

This is an active session in which teachers will

- find out more about the importance of active learning

- try out different active learning resources

- explore how to make existing curricula more active



Evidence underpinning this approach

Arguably, students who are motivated are most likely to reach their full potential inside and outside school. Active learning is a proven teaching strategy that increases student motivation and self-determination. A curriculum that makes use of active learning will acknowledge that students are more than passive listeners and will actively involve them in every step of the learning process. In today's education climate there is a great focus on results and while active learning will help students to achieve academically, it also equips them with metacognitive awareness and skills along the way. Learning then becomes a truly process-orientated experience giving students ownership of their learning and the opportunity to take it to the next level. Students will think about what they do in class and why they do it and which skills they can utilise to tackle problems.


How users/participants can evaluate success

The success of this workshop can be measured by increased levels of student enjoyment in lessons, parent responses and uptake at GCSE-Level.
