Professional Learning without Limits S12
We know that excellent teaching transforms the lives of all students, from those in early years to adult learners. At the Chartered College of Teaching, we believe the way to achieve excellent teaching and leadership is by supporting, developing and giving a voice to teachers, enabling them to be the very best they can be.

The education landscape is challenging. Everything from curricular and assessment reform and budget constraints and workload concerns, to feelings of disempowerment and disillusion, can hamper what happens in the classroom. We want to change that. This is a once-in-a-generation chance for the teaching profession. It is only through developing and showcasing teachers’ expertise that we will restore pride, autonomy and a grassroots voice that will be impossible to ignore.

“I’ve changed my mind!” Supporting the development of children’s ideas W94
Children (and indeed adults, as we may well prove during the session) like to be right, and children’s progress with conceptual understanding in science is often hindered by an unwillingness to change their minds. The tendency to hold on to scientifically incorrect ideas, even when they have been shown otherwise, is very strong (Johnston, 2014).
This workshop will explore practical strategies for helping children be comfortable with the idea of being ‘wrong’, and to be confident to change their minds. It will suggest that teachers should be happy with children’s ideas sometimes being scientifically incorrect.
It will demonstrate how linking an idea with evidence enables children to propose a range of possible ideas that may or may not be correct, but have value because they are linked to a piece of established evidence. Working in this way also helps children manage uncertainty and recognise that science is not black and white, and cannot always explain everything.
