In this episode I speak with Jon Hutchinson, Director of Training and Development at the Reach Foundation. Jon is also a Visiting Fellow at Ambition Institute for their Masters in Expert Teaching programme. Jon has spoken at ResearchEd events and has contributed a superb chapter on Instructional Coaching for the 'ResearchEd Guide to Leadership'.
Jon blogs at www.pedfed.wordpress.com
We explore in depth Jon's thinking behind his 'Five Best Bets for Teaching & Learning' which are:
1. Low Stakes Quizzing
2. Instructional Coaching
3. Sequencing Curriculum
4. Improving Ratio
5. Learning about Cognitive Load Theory
