And find out why ATL is the fastest growing union in the education sector
Teaching for learning marks the idea that teachers focus on what the learners are doing rather than what they the teachers are doing. This is the focus which is adopted by many effective and many experienced teachers.
When planning teaching for learning, our task as teachers is to focus on the experience for learners, rather on what we are going to say and do. We need to consider the experiences pupils will have and the ways we will support them to learn from those experiences.
Consider some ways in which you could use these ideas for other aspects of your teaching, and/or share them with a colleague.
