On January 23, I have the honour of presenting Cooperative Learning at one of this month’s MTA Weekend workshops at Berrymede Junior School.
I want to again promote the Muslim Teacher’s Association for making very expensive speakers and CPD events available to both Muslim and non-Muslim educationists at a fraction of market price. Last year saw Ms Camplell Stephens and Mr Ed Wallas at 10. Although I do not compare myself to them, this course would easily cost delegates £50, yet mada available at a fifth of the price to members of MTA and less than half of non-members.
Please also note this is an outstanding school which has been awarded the GPU education for Excellence 2013, and that the day also offers mentoring opportunities, with 30 minutes time slots to be allocated with experienced educational senior leaders).
This Workshop presents delegates with some of the active learning strategies of 21st Century British Muslim tailored to turn teaching and learning in Muslim faith schools outstanding within 12 months.
However, the course is also highly relevant to teachers working in state schools with a large proportion of Muslim pupils, looking to effectively approach controversy without repercussions, and ensure safeguarding and other statutory requirements are met without compromising the personal integrety of certain groups of students.
The relationship between Cooperative Learning, Pupil Premium and disadvantaged pupils have been discussed at great length in the post EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit; a Cooperative Learning gloss.
