Adaptive teaching

Adaptive teaching is a fundamental part of any educator's practice. In this training module we explain what adaptive teaching is and why it matters. We take you through a range of strategies teaching staff can use to adapt their teaching to ensure pupils understand and learn the concepts being taught and we explain how to anticipate barriers to learning. We share some 'in-the-moment' adaptations you can consider and we explain the importance of using technology and flexible grouping to respond to pupils' needs. This training module is recommended for all teaching staff and will take about 45 to 55 minutes to complete.

Embedding formative assessment

If formative assessment is embedded into our daily practice, it can transform learning for our pupils. During this training module we explore Dylan Wiliam's five key aspects of formative assessment, sharing practical strategies you could use immediately in the classroom. We focus on clarifying learning intentions and success criteria, and share ways to elicit what what pupils already know and can do. Strategies for giving feedback from the teacher and peers are explored and we consider how we can activate peers and learners in 'owning' their learning. This training module is recommended for all teaching staff and will take approximately 1 hour 15 minutes to complete.
