Event Summary



Date and Time

Thursday 3 December 2020 (13:00 to 15:00)


Free (£30.00 non-members)

We are excited to offer a new opportunity for all those who are working to support the improvement of teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) within their organisations. 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.

This initial online meeting of this newly formed group will discuss what constitutes good practice in TLA in these Covid-changed times, and will concentrate on how you are working to support teachers and trainers.  Topics to be discussed during the session will focus on some of the key themes facing providers, including:

  • Is there a shift in emphasis in relation to what constitutes good practice in TLA?
  • How are teachers developing the new skills required to reflect the increase in online delivery relative to face-to-face?
  • How are you supporting teachers to modify their delivery styles?
  • What has been learned so far about successful change strategies?
  • How are your own professional development needs being met?

We know that collaboration and the sharing of approaches works well to improve the quality of what we do.  There is no point in ‘re-inventing the wheel’, so we need to encourage the sharing of practice. We therefore look forward to welcoming you to participate in this interactive online event which has been designed both to share and to identify solutions to a range of issues and challenges associated with delivery and assessment. The session will provide an opportunity to discover resources, practices and processes that are working well for your colleagues in similar development roles across a variety of organisations.

Co-hosted by Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development, Skills and Education Group), and Dr Alison Scott (Lead Professional Development Advisor), this online session utilising Zoom will include the use of break-out rooms to encourage collaboration and the facilitation of ideas, enabling professional  exchange within a safe and supportive environment.
