What are the skills that teachers need, and what do they need to know? What really makes a difference in the classroom? And what do we know about developing teachers’ practice? Is engaging with or in research an effective way to drive change? Drawing on evidence from the UK and internationally, this session looks at ways of conceptualising, developing and reflecting on teaching, offering practical examples of approaches from schools in a range of different settings.

Whether you’re responsible for leading the development or others or are interested in developing your own practice, this session will give you the chance to hear, discuss and share effective approaches to teacher professional development.
