Engaging Learners

This course will be online:

  • Carmel is presenting via webcam, accompanied by slides and activities
  • Opportunities for delegate questions and comments

Are you looking for ways to hook learners in and then maintain that learning momentum?

Do you have ‘difficult to reach’ groups or cohorts? This session will offer ways of maximising learner participation by arousing curiosity with initial stimulus material and then keeping learners ‘in flow’. We will consider challenge, choice, collaboration and competition as ways of motivating learners. The importance of intrinsic motivation will be demonstrated through practical classroom strategies that can be easily designed and applied to any curriculum area. You will leave with versatile solutions to try in your setting.

Who will benefit?

Teachers and school leaders aiming to develop learner motivation, participation, self- regulation and autonomy. There will be take-aways for NQTS, RQTs, experienced teachers, Heads of Department or Faculty, Assistant Heads, Teachers Leading on Teaching and Learning, Pastoral Heads and Heads of Sixth Form.
