In our first Early Career Fest session, Amy Forrester (Director of Pastoral Care, Cockermouth School and Behaviour Columnist, TES) joined Katy Chedzey (Head of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Chartered College of Teaching) in delivering a presentation on How to Implement an Effective Classroom Culture. In this webinar they explored:
- What do we mean by ‘classroom culture’
- Why establishing an effective classroom culture is important for facilitating learning
- What are the characteristics of an effective classroom culture and what does this look like in practice?
- Practical examples of how to successfully implement and embed an effective classroom culture
- What are the challenges teachers might face and how might these be overcome?
Participants also asked Amy and Katy questions in a Q&A towards the end of the webinar.
