Setting the Scene

Dr Martha Shaw will lead a taster session exploring key questions around the classroom experience. We will think about the purpose of education, how it underlies many contemporary debates and how it translates at the classroom level in how teachers facilitate learning. This activity will involve thinking about how values and theories translate in to practice in education.
