Session Title:

HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR DIVERSE LEARNERS WHILE SURVIVING YOUR FIRST FEW YEARS OF TEACHING

~ A session for EARLY CAREER TEACHERS (first 5 years after graduation) in primary or secondary settings ~

Most early career teachers completed some coursework related to working with diverse learners during their pre-service training, and arrive at school ready to embrace diversity and teach inclusively. However, the reality of teaching a very diverse range of students can be daunting when the curriculum still seems unfamiliar; you are still building your confidence with classroom management practices; targeted mentoring or support from well-educated specialist staff might not be available; you may be employed on short-term contracts; or you might be teaching in an unexpected learning area.

This short workshop provides an opportunity to refresh your understanding of the key principles and practices of effective differentiation, with a particular focus on realistic inclusive practices for the first few years of teaching, and building on the solid foundations you have established to work towards more effective differentiation in the future. We will discuss teaching strategies that take relatively little preparation; critical areas of classroom practice that can support a differentiated approach; and, how to set and evaluate reasonable goals for differentiation early in your career.

Attendance certificates will be available for collection at the conclusion of the event. Please note, minimum numbers are required for this event to proceed.
