As an NQT I found the seminars on this forum one of the most useful resources anywhere online. 7 years later, that's still true! While we've had a few impromptu seminars take off recently, others haven't faired so well.

So, I'd like to propose that we put together a timetable of seminars, probably one a month, kicking off next academic year.

As before, someone would volunteer to put the initial few posts together, outlining the key issues, ideas, resources etc and the forum community will (hopefully!) jump in and shape it from there.

So, what topics would you like to see us cover?

There are many older seminars that could perhaps be updated, but equally new topics that have never been covered.

Please reply below with any suggested topics, especially if you're willing to take the lead and write the opening couple of posts.

Probably should have volunteered myself shouldn't I?!?

I'd be happy to lead one on Project Based Learning

I'd also love to see seminars on Solo taxonomy and A Level teaching.

I'm thinking of all the things that I found bewildering last year:

SOLO explained!
Project based learning
Teaching questioning skills to STUDENTS
How to show progress
Managing marking, making marking meaningful
Differentiation at GCSE

That's a great list!

So, which one are you volunteering to lead? ;)

Feedback and formative assessment - I'd be happy to lead it too :)

Gosh, well as I've not (quite) been teaching for 2 years yet I don't feel very qualified to write a seminar! But I can certainly describe the issues/concerns/problems faced by us newbies as an opening? I'll have a look at questioning?

I would be willing to do one on teaching Irish history.

would be interested in following a seminar on a 1 to 1 programme in a history class if anyone wants to go with that one
