it's just a short drive from Junction 29 of the M5.
For the past 18 months, I’ve been championing ‘speed-dating‘ as an alternative mechanism for staff professional development sessions.
Conversations about behaviour management, starters, assessment for learning and using apps on devices were being shared – and this was even before the CPD session had started!
We asked all teachers to ‘think of an idea they use in the classroom’ which they could share with other teachers (in just 30 seconds)!
As soon as the email and flyers were posted, staff started talking about it!
The panel will consist of: Ben Clark - Radio Exe - Programme Manager James Dundon - Heart South West - Presenter Janet Kipling – BBC Radio Devon - Presenter / Journalist James Walker – Celador Radio - Network Manager Pauline Causey - BBC Radio Cornwall - Managing Editor Richard Spencer – Global South West – Managing Editor Mark Grinnell - BBC Radio Devon – Managing Editor Jon White - Radio Plymouth - Programme Controller You will be able to choose with whom you wish to discuss your career ambitions.
If you are or would like to be a presenter, then you will need to bring a short example of your own audio on a USB drive. The address is Hawthorn House, Exeter Business Park, Exeter, EX1 3QS - see the map below.
October, join us at Heart’s studios in Exeter for an evening speed-dating with Managing Editors, Programmers, Producers and Journalists.Whether you want to play the hits on a music radio station, produce top radio shows or report on the biggest news stories, someone will be able to give you quality advice.The idea of speed-dating isn’t new for language teachers – often used to prepare students for speaking exams – and using this idea to lead a whole-staff training session after a long day at school, seemed a brilliant opportunity!All the resources are ready-made on the [email protected] Toolkit website – even music is suggested to help motivate – and so, before half-term we started to advertise the session.This is a guest post written by Nicky Phillips, after she trialled the idea in her school in Exeter.
As a group of Lead Practitioners at St James School in Exeter, we were asked to lead professional development sessions for the whole teaching body! I could already feel my heart pounding with the nerves …) Toolkit!
