Becoming Educated

May 30, 2022

This week I am joined for the first of the Teaching and Learning Lead Series by Rachel Ball. Rachel is Assistant Principal at Co-op Academy Walkden and we discuss how she is leading evidence informed teaching across her school.

In this episode we explore the following:

Why it is important for the teaching and learning lead to be evidence-informed

Why it is important that there is a vision for teaching and learning in a school

How Rachel has helped create a shared language around teaching and learning

How Rachel has made engaging with evidence accessible

How Rachel has optimised performance management to show that staying evidence-informed is important at her school.

I loved exploring Rachel's role as a teaching and learning lead and was particularly impressed by the resource she is creating using Google Classroom, i'm certainly going to borrow that idea.
