The Station Rotation Model: Make Time for Small Group Differentiated Instruction, by Dr Catlin Tucker
 
Explore how the Station Rotation Model can help you create more opportunities to work directly with small groups of students, individualise scaffolding and support, differentiate instruction, move feedback into the classroom, and allow students to control the pace of their learning.  

During this hands-on, practice-based session, Dr Catlin Tucker will highlight strategies for designing dynamic lessons, provide tips for making the most of your teacher-led station, review grouping strategies, and encourage you to move feedback and assessment into the classroom.

This workshop will cover the following:
- The Station Rotation Model
- Strategic use of video instruction
- Role of data in designing accessible and equitable learning experiences
- Empowering student agency and choice
- Modification of traditional station rotation

Only 50 seats available! The registration form can be downloaded here: Registration Form. Please email to ascdadmin@work-solutions.com if you need more information. See you soon!

Teaching and Leading in an Increasingly Complex School Environment

- How do we continue to remain effective in the classroom amidst rapid changes around us?
- How do we engage a new generation of students who feel entitled but continue to have learning needs?
- How do we achieve outcomes that are consistent with the investment of our time and efforts?

Heads of Department, Subject Heads and Classroom Teachers face the above challenges daily. In this half-day workshop, participants will get a better understanding of the changes taking place in the external and internal environments in our schools. Using diagnostic tools, participants will be able to identify some of the underlying issues that are not always apparent to busy individuals. Participants will appreciate the value of unearthing students’ aspirations, generating conversations and understanding complexities through the Leadership Insights Framework™ above. Participants will also discuss actively the Seven Strategies to EMBRACE Complexities™.

Quotes from participants of the 1st Workshop on 13th March 2023: 

Sharing of good practical teaching strategies which EL teachers can bring back to the classroom to help my students. Helps me understand more than dyslexia.

Diana Chua, Peirce Secondary School

 Practical examples provided through sharing of the types of resources used to hone their skills plus Kimberly's and her son's honest sharing were very heartfelt and insightful in helping me to understand how to support my students, appreciate the challenges faced and articulate clearly my students' learning needs/support to my college. It is also very encouraging.

How can teachers attend to mathematical details embedded in students' work? How can we analyse students' thinking to make instructional decisions that enhance students' learning? In this interactive online workshop on Teacher Noticing, we will focus on developing an awareness of how teachers can build teaching expertise by learning to attend to and interpret instructional details to making instructional decisions.

At the end of the workshop, participants should:
1. Know the different components of teacher noticing;
2. Be aware of what and how to notice students' thinking from their work; and
3. Use what they have noticed to improve their teaching

Feedback is an assessment fulcrum point: when done well it can shift the skill and responsibility of self-regulated learning to our pupils. What we choose to comment on, how we deliver the information, and when we give it all affect the extent to which they will learn from it. In this half-day workshop we delve into guidelines drawn from research that ensure our feedback is effective in causing new learning and in helping pupils learn to self-direct.

Objectives:
 •    Five guidelines for offering feedback that maximize impact on learning
 •    How to make feedback-giving take considerably less time
 •    How to teach pupils to give each other accurate and actionable feedback
