Stated learning outcomes for this course

This introductory session is highly practical and you will engage in a number of inclusive, whole class activities as learners and then reflect on these techniques as professionals.

This two day course focuses on what research tells us makes the most difference to the life chances of children and young people: Quality First Teaching.

Day 1 is an opportunity to consider the research around truly inclusive Quality First Teaching, debunk some myths around differentiation and explore a simple model for the inclusive classroom.

Day 2 is an introduction to The Narrowing the Gaps Pedagogy Project, which supports teachers to address progress and attainment inequalities between different groups of learners. The session explores the five elements of narrow gap classrooms (Participation, Engagement through Challenge, Thinking Skills and Meta-cognition, Dialogue and Collaboration) and is highly practical. Participants will engage in a number of activities and then reflect on how these can be adapted to different classroom contexts.
