Blended Learning - Mixing the virtual with the actual: a pedagogy of the future

Blended Learning - Mixing the virtual with the actual: a pedagogy of the future

Schools are finally taking a break and I know from many conversations that it has been difficult. Everyone with a pupil facing role has had to manage significant change in how they ensure learning continues to take place and can support pupils to continue to enjoy their school work and stay safe and well.  Deep reflection from many we work with suggests that we will not be returning to normal any time soon and even when we do we are unlikely to go back to exactly how we were.  It is clear that there are merits as well as challenges to face with how technology is used as an aid to learning. The opportunities for a more blended learning approach are becoming clear especially in the face of uncertainty about social distancing and the prospect of a further need to quarantine.   The more we can focus on how to make this a positive experience the more confident we can become in using technology and distance learning that will ensure all pupils thrive and are not disadvantaged in the longer term.

We have designed this course using our considerable expertise gained through developing our on-line CPD offer for schools and colleges. We have used some of the most up to date research and our long association with the power of coaching as a way of ensuring that all staff and pupils can work indpendently, find their own solutions and build the self esteem that will drive ambition, motiavion and success.

From in-depth research and consultation the following agenda promises to be exciting:-

  • Investigating and sharing teaching and learning strategies that will support independent and distance learning
  • Putting the spotlight on behaviours and the protocols that deliver successful outcomes for both learners and teachers
  • Exploring how to build in challenge that deepens learning and stretches potential
  • Overcoming the issues of engagement for those learners who have limited access to technology, a lack of parental encouragement of who are disengaged from the process
  • Assessing learning through motivational dialogue, positive outcomes and deep reflection
  • Sharing practice and learning strategies through the development of a coaching approach to group dynamics

There has never been a better time to review the way we teach, reflect on how learners can adapt to new ways of learning and build a new approach to the 21st century classroom.

 Who is it for?

This course is for all staff who are involved in teaching and learning. For senior leaders it will be invaluable in order to look closely at how blended learning can support the quest for a more inclusive and independent approach to designing and implementing the curriculum. For teaching staff there is a wealth of opportunity to reflect on how to use different pedagogy, create the motivational virtual classroom and build learners who are confident to find out for themselves, learn independently and share their learning in all sorts of new ways. For those with a responsibility for CPD this course will provide all the messages, resources and materials to cascade the learning to others.
