Session 5 PowerPoint slides
Pre-session 6 Tasks
Before session 6 we would like you to do the following task:
Think of a ‘critical instance’ that has happened in your teaching since the course started and think about your achievements so far.
- How did you deal with it?
- What are the key learning points for you so far?
- What has resonated with your teaching?
(If no teaching has taken place since the start of the course, reflect upon your ‘takeaway’ moments instead.)
Record your reflections in your reflective diaries.
