Event Details

We are delighted to be invited back (this time in person) to Brillantmont International School to deliver a programme which has been designed for teachers working with students ages 13-18 years.

Drawing on recent and relevant research into student learning and classroom practice, will help us;

  • To explore overarching principles of differentiating learning for all students
  • To consider approaches and strategies to match teaching to the learning needs of all students
  • To work collaboratively to apply and further develop ideas in the classroom – enabling teachers to share practice

Programme Overview

  • Purpose and importance of differentiating learning
  • Approaches to differentiation centred on:
    • Content – building on prior knowledge, using subject substantive and disciplinary knowledge to build sequential learning, modelling and scaffolding to support all learners
    • Process – using formative assessment to engage and inform learners of the next steps.
    • Product – identifying clear and consistent expectations for outcomes – applying principles of growth mindset.
    • Learning environment – how ethos and physical environment can be adapted to support learning and individual learners (for example the purpose of displays to the importance of classroom climate).

  • Applying the approaches
    • Planning via backward design processes
    • Conscious practice – identifying specific skills and ideas to practice in your own classroom
    • Summarising and presenting your own learning on differentiation to peers

Participants will engage in a range of collaborative learning approaches during the 2 days, working in small groups to explore principles and approaches, and then apply this by undertaking collaborative planning activities and presenting an overview of their learning to each other.

The 2-day programme will also encourage participants to develop a ‘learning community
