Webinar: How can we use differentiation to maximise student learning?

A presentation on differentiation by Bukky Yusuf

Differentiation is a pragmatic process that enables teachers to maximise each student’s learning in the long-term. It is a process of giving students appropriate levels of feedback, scaffolding and targeted practice to support them in achieving these common learning goals.

In this webinar chaired by Dr Lisa-Maria Muller (Education Research Manager, Chartered College of Teaching), Bukky Yusuf FCCT (Senior Leader, Edith Kay School) provided an understanding of what differentiation is, why it is useful for teachers in their day-to-day teaching practice, and how it fits in with having high expectations on outcomes for all learners.

Covered in this webinar recording:

  • What is the purpose of differentiation and why it is important for ensuring the progress of all learners?
  • What are the challenges in implementing differentiation into day to day practice and how might we overcome these?
  • Practical examples of approaches to differentiation in the classroom
