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

We will examine:

  • how to use film to encourage discussion around Transition and anti-bullying issues
  • how film can help address issues of behaviour and classroom management
  • how to promote critical thinking skill such as observation, analysis, inference
  • using film to address issues of equality
  • the law around films in the classroom including copyright and BBFC guidelines
  • how using film can narrow gaps in access to cultural resources
Evidence underpinning this approach

This course is led by specialist film makers from Into Film.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Teachers can match up their progress in the classroom against their memo to me (what they aim to action from this course at their school). Another copy of this will be sent to all teachers 7-8 weeks after the course with form inviting them to assess/analyse implementation and learning so far and plans how to take things forward. This is for personal as well as professional development.

Follow-up activities and support

Group feedback during the course is circulated to participants and they are made aware of new research or developments in that particular field of education (that could be taken further, i.e. professional enquiry and/or university accreditation).
