Excellence in Teaching Conference 2019

A Model for Teaching Excellence

  • Ensure teachers have the tools to help every learner achieve at least one year’s progress

  • 1 + 1 = 3: how schools, clusters and local authorities can develop the quality of teachers

  • Improve teacher learning to raise the quality of teaching and learning year on year

  • Tackle bureaucracy, uncertainty and variance of quality

‘The differences within schools are greater than the differences between schools’ – Professor John Hattie. Find out why we need to be better learners. Discover how your school can be a fertile place for adult learning.

Discover techniques to:

  • Reduce the variance of teaching within schools and across clusters

  • Understand the three barriers to teachers being higher performers:

    • Cognitive overload

    • Low relational trust

    • Perception gaps

Crystal-clear clarity

Help leaders and teachers to be clear about:

  • What education is for

  • Your school’s aims and vision

  • The pedagogy that has the biggest impact on children and young people

  • The difference between deep and moderate subject understanding

The jenga of trust

  • Build a culture of reflection, evaluation and risk-taking

  • How to develop relational trust – and what not to do

  • Create a high-trust, high-accountability organisation

  • How to model openness to learning

Did you see the gorilla?

  • How we delude ourselves that we’re better than we really are

  • Build systems that enable us to close perception gaps:

    • Baseline diagnostics

    • Rubrics to improve practice

    • Video analysis

    • Stakeholder surveys

Every teacher improves every year

  • Ensure your systems and culture enable teachers to make more impact on learners

  • Improve teachers’ time management

  • Design agendas for effective meetings

  • Improve teachers in the workflow – lesson feedback and informal learning

  • Design high-impact professional training that can be delivered in-house

You will leave with a toolbox to help you develop so all teachers become excellent and all pupils make the progress they deserve.
