Day 1: 5th October 2017 - A Mindset for Teaching and Learning
A session packed full of handy tips and innovative strategies for developing a classroom Growth Mindset; essential for facilitating participation and sustainable progress. This practical and interactive course explores the importance of acknowledging setbacks, the structure of learning and neurological changes (amongst other things.)
Intended Outcomes: Teachers will acquire the knowledge, understanding and tools to facilitate a positive Growth Mindset to learning amongst pupils.
Day 2: 18th November 2017 - The Art of Growing Brilliance
Most teachers recognise the value of fostering positive intrinsic learning behaviours and many ‘get’ that Growth Mindsets are crucial. It’s just that promoting GM and practising GM are two very different things entirely; the latter requiring an ‘inside-out,’ authenticity, rather than the more commonly exhibited ‘display-board-in.’ ‘The Art of Growing Brilliance,’ incorporates our core messages of happiness, flourishing, resilience & personal responsibility, and looks at embedding positivity in (and out of) the classroom. Identifying developmental potholes along the road to learning, and knowing just how to navigate them, requires a shift in focus for teachers and pupils alike. A Growth Mindset is for life, not laminating, after all…
Day 3: Date TBC - Creative Thinking and Learning
The nature of schooling is changing; rapid technological advancements mean it is imperative that today’s pupils acquire the capacity to solve tomorrow’s problems. Thinking creatively (whatever that is), and how to cultivate the confidence to do so, is key to learning to learn. The course contains a wealth of stimuli to cultivate divergent thinking and the courage to craft creative solutions.
Intended Outcomes: Teachers to acquire a wealth of practical ideas, strategies and activities for cultivating creative thinking and doing in the classroom.
