The final week of my course has been interesting and thought provoking around exploring the range and nature of partnerships that enable learning. This has not just been about teacher and pupil. It has been about different platforms across schools and learning environments.
This week the course covered:
- Partnerships for learning
- Building a climate of trust
- Perspectives on partnerships for learning
- The use of feedback
- Feedback and the growth mindset
- Pupil feedback
- Pupil voice
- Teaching and learning together
- Valuing pupil voice
- Pedagogy pros and cons
Across the last four weeks the course has explored a range of different perspectives and strategies around effective learning particularly for girls. Taking this into account there is no reason why the same things would not be relevant for boys as an excellent teaching/coaching practice.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have taken lots away which I intend to incorporate into my coaching practice in 2017.
I would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year and I will see you in 2017.
