Instill confidence in the value of learner engagement

Are your learners embracing their learning journey with enthusiasm and engagement?

Together with Lindee Conway, we’re offering this exclusive half day workshop session for foundation teachers, tailored to help foundation teachers create environments that support and encourage active learning.

This intermediate session focuses on foundational learning, emphasising the importance of fun and action in teaching. We'll cover topics like the significance of active learning, moving beyond assessment-focused methods, and the value of fun as an educational device, along with theoretical insights.

It addresses the challenges of long days and the need for active learner participation, transcending traditional assessment and evidence-based methods.

Explore the educational value of fun, backed by theory, and discover engaging activities to enhance your teaching repertoire. The session aims to instill confidence in the value of learner engagement and provide practical methods, templates, and variations for Foundation Learners. Join us to connect with research on active and inclusive learning and network with like-minded professionals. This session promises to be an enriching experience for educators seeking to invigorate their teaching approach with innovative, engaging strategies.
