Gratnells Learning Rooms is launching a series of free webinars to support teaching staff, school leaders and technicians.
The first webinar ‘Does your classroom help children learn?’ goes live later this month and we will be joined by Dr Katherine Forsey CSciTeach who will be hosting this webinar.
The classroom environment affects student performance. Through the webinar we will explore the environmental factors influencing learning in your classroom. You will find out how to:
- Monitor and control seven key environmental factors.
- Make simple changes to improve student performance and outcomes.
- Introduce classroom-based enquiries to engage your students, facilitate greater awareness and improve student agency in regards to their learning environment.
Dr Katherine Forsey CSciTeach will introduce the research underpinning our knowledge in this area including the work of Professor Peter Barrett, Professor Stephen Heppell and their research teams. Dr Forsey will share how the science of improving educational outcomes can be immediately applied in classrooms. You’ll see data from a live, in-school, world-wide data collection project and hear about the impact the project is having at the classroom level in case study schools.
Thursday 29th April at 4.30pm
Audience: Suitable for teachers, senior leaders, head teachers, school governors, trainee teachers, nursery managers, premises managers and all those with an interest in the creation and management of optimal learning environments.
Format: 30 min webinar with interactive elements followed by a 15 min Q&A.
