Research School Network: Research Breakfasts Three FREE webinars based on the EEF guidance reports
Three FREE webinars based on the EEF guidance reports
Exploring the EEF’s Feedback Guidance Report
Friday 24 September 9.00−10.30
Explore the headline recommendations from the EEF’s new Feedback guidance report published in June 2021. We’ll also look at how schools can ensure the guidance is given the best chance of success by using a thorough implementation process.
Exploring the EEF’s SEN in Mainstream Schools Guidance Report
Friday 19 November 9.00−10.30
The EEF guidance report offers five evidence-based recommendations to support pupils with SEND, providing a starting point for schools to review their current approach. The overriding message from the report is a positive one. It is tempting to talk about the challenge of SEND as a specific and distinct issue. Yet, far from creating new programmes, the evidence tells us that teachers should instead prioritise familiar but powerful strategies, like scaffolding and explicit instruction, to support their pupils with SEND.
Using Assessment to Further Learning
Friday 11 March 20229.00−10.30
Diagnostic assessment provides opportunities to reflect on pupils’ thinking, strengths, and weaknesses. It can give useful insights into pupil learning. When used effectively, diagnostic assessments can indicate areas for development with individual pupils or across classes and year groups. In this session, we will explore the principles of assessment as well as some accessible diagnostic assessment strategies.
