HITS! High Impact Teaching Strategies for Improving Pupil Progress
We want our students to be confident, curious, resilient young people who take control of their own learning, and our role as their teacher impacts directly on the progress they make. Learning Styles and Brain Gym? Much of what we’ve been taught works in the classroom really doesn’t. So what is effective teaching? This course unpicks what the current evidence is telling us, and pinpoints the top 10 HITS (High Impact Teaching Strategies) to maximise pupil progress. Throughout the course, teachers will be encouraged to ask ‘what would this look like in my classroom?’, and there will be time to develop learning experiences, reflect and share practice with other teachers.
Teachers will have the opportunity to
• explore the current educational research, and consider how this might inform current practice
• spend time planning and sharing practice with other teachers
• develop a range of active learning approaches to enable students to deepen their learning
