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.
