Traditional lesson observations can fill teachers with fear and do not provide the observer with a true reflection of the teacher’s effectiveness nor what goes on in their classroom on a daily basis. Developmental lesson observations focus on the teacher and allow them to lead the process, identifying areas they wish to focus on and improve. They empower the teacher and remove any judgemental comments allowing the teacher to feel supported. This is a great way to improve the effectiveness of teaching in schools whilst removing the fear factor of observations.
Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
