Description

How do expert teachers do it? How do they enhance student learning? How do they manage the dilemmas and tensions inherent in working with 25 different students in every lesson?

Internationally respected teacher educator Professor John Loughran argues that teachers' knowledge of what they do is largely tacit and often misunderstood. What is the essence of professional practice for classroom teachers?

Drawing on the best research on pedagogy, Professor Loughran will outline the crucial principles of teaching and learning, and show us how they are translated into practice using real classroom examples. He believes that teaching procedures need to be part of an integrated approach, so that they are genuinely meaningful and result in learning.

Please join Professor Loughran to discuss what the best teachers around the world do and how you can be one.
