  • Helps teachers become clearer about what their primary focus should be.

  • How to demonstrate high expectations in every aspect of your teaching.

  • How to design assessments that maximise learning.

  • Become a better explainer.

  • Use video analysis to understand your own teaching habits – good and bad, at a deeper level.

  • How to develop class rooms where learners are not just open to feedback, they act on it too!

  • Delivered over three sessions of three hours each.

Professor Barry J. Hymer.

Malit Community Learning’s work with parents has been stunning. First of all, there has been a high attendance at all of the sessions. Second, the parents have loved them, especially the humour and practical aspects. Finally, I’d recommend this course as a great way of getting parents to be more engaged and informed as to how they can help their children at school.

“Excellent and exceeded expectations. Lots to

go back to school to think about and cascade to

other colleagues.”
