Dangerous Minds: Addressing the prism of disappointment
Jo Stansfield & Marie Willoughby
Both participants and trainers on teacher education courses desire to be inspirational, life-changing teachers. This can lead them to discount the learners’ experiences, culture and incremental progress, feeling disappointed if there are no ‘revelations’ in lessons. This talk looks at what informs this reaction and explores ways of managing expectations, encouraging all to see learning as and when it occurs.
Maximising Learning for Adults with Specific Learning Differences
Stuart Pollard & Alan Andrew
This session will consider the implications of inclusion and diversity in the classroom: What do specific learning differences look like in the classroom? Which strategies will support people with learning differences, and how can they support learning for all? What are the benefits and rewards of an inclusive classroom? We will discuss areas including the social model of disability, barriers to learning, differentiation and universal design through the lens of adult learning.
