THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will discuss opportunities for developing an evidence-informed teaching profession and identify steps that can be taken to improve the provision of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in England.
It follows the recent Department for Education (DfE) appointment of an Evidence Champion who will assist in spreading evidence-based practice in opportunity areas, and the recent emphasis from the DfE on ensuring teachers are equipped with an understanding of the latest research, and use evidence to inform their teaching practice.
Delegates will assess options for overcoming practical issues for the use of data and evidence in the classroom, including managing time and resources, how best to provide teachers with access to both educational data and research, and what can be done to convert these into explicit knowledge for teachers to interact with and utilise.
The seminar will also provide an opportunity to consider the provision of CPD for the profession, following the launch of the Chartered College of Teaching in January 2017.
Sessions will consider further steps that can be taken to widen access to high quality CPD, options for improving the understanding of assessment, and priorities for the new Chartered College of Teaching, including how it might best provide a collective voice for the profession.
