What is it?
Department meetings are a staple of teaching life, but making sure that they're are an effective use of staff time can be tricky. Thankfully this CPD guide provides a solution.
Working in pairs, staff are encouraged to discuss their approaches to teaching a variety of mathematical topics. Providing a structured way for colleagues of all experiences to share their expertise, this booklet helps to focus department meetings on pedagogy, rather than admin.
How can it be used?
I am a great believer in the power of habit. Making these ten-minute exercises a regular feature of your staff sessions is the best way to ensure that teachers reap the benefits.
You’ll be fascinated with how many different pedagogical approaches come to light!
