Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course will explore projects and practical lesson ideas that will be particularly motivating for boys; look at ways to improve boys’ performance and close the gender gap; consider how effective feedback and praise can encourage greater participation and engagement and give you the opportunity to discuss ideas and share best practice with teachers from other schools and colleges.
