Event Summary



Date and Time

Thursday 18 March 2021 (13:00 to 15:00)


Free (£30.00 non-members)

This network is designed as a source of professional development and support for all those with a brief to work with teachers to improve their teaching, learning and assessment practices.  The aim is to share successful approaches and to collaborate on solutions to difficult challenges in a confidential space. We welcome inputs from those working in the field because we appreciate the value of peer-to-peer advice and support.

We are therefore pleased to welcome Richard West (Teaching and Learning Coach and Public Services Lecturer, Stamford College) to input at this spring meeting of the network.  Richard will share his approach to developing the online behaviours of students and trainees.

Managing behaviour can be the most challenging expectation of teachers’ practice, and we know that behaviour management has to be efficient if students are to learn. Covid-19 has added an extra dimension of difficulty in the sudden shift to online delivery of teaching and training.  Should there be a different approach to managing behaviour for learning, dependent on whether the learning is online or face-to-face, or are the principles the same? Do share your views and join in the conversation.

So, whether your role is titled Advanced Practitioner, Learning and/or Development Coach, Teaching and Learning Lead or something else entirely, if you work directly with staff to support them to improve their TLA practice, then this new termly event has been designed with you in mind.

Facilitated by Dr Alison Scott (Lead Professional Advisor, Skills and Education Group) and Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development, Skills and Education Group), this online session utilising Zoom will provide plenty of opportunity for peer networking and collaboration.
