This course combines theory on the teaching thinking approach with practical, worked examples. A teacher-research element between the taught days allows you to trial strategies with students in the classroom. Reflecting on your own experiences is a key factor in the success of this professional development programme. The course is certificated and can be accredited for master's study.
