Lesson Study and action research are effective ways of engaging your staff in professional learning but it can often be seen as 'another thing to do'. We can facilitate this process for you.
We are inviting interested Schools, Trusts and Alliances to engage in an R&D Program that puts the process of learning under the microscope.

We have created three things that will make this process work in your school
This Proposal dives into the project in a little more detail.
Changing the format of evidence for easier access.
Step-by-step instructions displayed visually.
Utilising robust evidence, teaching staff design and deliver classroom activities based on their learners needs. The Research and Development program is delivered in bite-size chunks and seamlessly integrates into a busy school day.
Central to the program is a new cognitive tool for the classroom. The thinking toolkits encourage learning behaviours such as metacognitive talk and reasoning.
We have users from EYFS all the way up to KS5. The strategy is a highly versatile medium that can be adapted and applied across concepts, topics and age groups.
It depends upon the size of the project. We have the cost of resources and time to cover but we can essentially build a project around any budget. Please talk to us for a quote.
Between 3 and 4 twilight/half day sessions and optional classroom support days. The program encourages classroom practitioners to collaborate with their colleagues with the intention of developing an authentic dialogue around learning and teaching.
An R&D launch meeting gives staff an opportunity to 'play' with the kits and find out about the theory and practice. The teachers research journal simplifies the action research approach into digestible steps. The groundwork for innovation has been done ready for your staff.
