Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students Each participant taking part will:
• Build their understanding of a broad spectrum of key events in medical history and discover new ideas and approaches to the topic
• Explore medicine and surgery in the trenches and develop their knowledge of WW1 as a case study that links to the curriculum
• Delve into methods of setting criteria and using intepretation in the classroom within this topic and beyond

This day is for you if:
• You would like fresh ideas to engage your students with History and make your subject exciting
• You would like to give focus to teaching across a large time period
• You would like to explore ways to follow up on sources
• You want to gain resources and activities to use in class for this topic and beyond
Evidence underpinning this approach This course provides subject-knowledge enhancement from experts in the field, as well as teacher-facilitated discussion on best practice when teaching the topic. The Sutton Trust identified the strongest evidence for what makes a great teacher as being:

1) Teachers' subject content knowledge, including their ability to understand how students think about a subject and identify common misconceptions
2) Quality of instruction
How users/participants can evaluate success Participants will fill in evaluation forms on the day regarding the achievement of the aims of this course.
Follow-up activities and support We will send you postcards that you have written on the day as a follow up from the event. The postcards contain points on what you found inspiring and what you will do differently in lessons as a result of the CPD Day.
