Sync is working with ASCL Professional Development (ASCL PD) to deliver a series of blended learning sessions for school leaders. ASCL is one of the UK’s leading providers of CPD and leadership development – designing, developing and delivering a range of conferences, short courses, nationally recognized qualifications and tailor-made services that meet both government initiatives and professional needs identified by colleagues in schools. and colleges.

MIXED LEARNING EVENT SERIES

As schools now adjust to their students’ return to class, how can they ensure that learning has not been lost and adapt to this new style of learning? A blended approach will allow schools to have the best of both worlds, teaching and learning online and in the classroom.

In this new three-part series, we’ll look at how schools can assess and plan their new strategy based on guidelines from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) Putting Evidence to Work: A School Implementation Guide.

Session 1 – Planning for the “new normal”

PREVIEW

In the first part, participants will explore how schools deal with the transition to a blended approach to learning, the questions that need to be asked and the pitfalls they might encounter. This blended approach has an impact on many aspects of school life, such as increased demands on the environment and school infrastructure. How can schools plan and implement the needs of this new style of learning?

A digital approach to learning places many demands on a school, however, planning is essential for the implementation to be successful. Examples will show how this can be managed for the school while aligning it with the EEF guidance document.

This digital strategy affects many aspects of school operations, from communication to collaboration and impact on work by reducing the time needed for administrative burden as well as financial and environmental savings.

Technology has allowed learning to be delivered in different styles to ensure that all students have equitable levels of learning.

In this session, participants will examine how some schools have changed their planning and instructional strategies to provide students with a more enriched and accessible learning experience.
