About this webinar:

The first few years of teaching can be overwhelming: there is so much to master that seems complex, challenging and important. New teachers have to focus on a small number of things that will have the most impact, but what does research identify as the highest-leverage skills, practices and knowledge? This session will outline the evidence about those essential elements, drawing on our recent review at www.greatteaching.com, and illustrate them with examples.

About the presenter:

Rob joined the EEF in February 2019 to support the development of new approaches to running evaluations of teacher practices whose results will be both rigorous and relevant, as well as providing technical expertise. He was previously Professor of Education and Director of the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring at Durham University, where he worked for 20 years doing research, evaluation, teaching and policy engagement. Rob is particularly interested in the uses of research by teachers and school leaders and how it can be integrated into everyday pedagogy and school-level decision-making. He was a co-author of the EEF’s Teaching and Learning Toolkit, the Sutton Trust report ‘What makes great teaching?’ and the ‘Developing Great Teaching’ report for the Teacher Development Trust. He has been a member of numerous advisory groups on assessment, evaluation and use of evidence.

What you will learn:
  • Outline the evidence about the elements of great teaching
  • Explore what these essential elements look like in practice
  • Provide pointers to additional resources to develop and deepen these ideas
