1. Gaining Pedagogical Influence as a Head of Department
As Heads of Departments or School Leaders we often want to be able to influence our staff pedagogically.
But do we have the credibility in the eyes of our teachers to influence them pedagogically?
Often, we don’t!
However, engaging in a Learn Implement Share Team PD course with teachers can give leaders increased pedagogical influence.
2. But sir, when will we ever need this? - the relevance question!
We need to make mathematics relevant - but what does that mean? (It’s not what you think!)
We maths teachers often hear the cry - you have to make maths relevant. But what does ‘make maths relevant’ mean? Jeff Mills has an interesting take on this.
And did you know that when a student asks “Sir, when will we ever use this (i.e. what relevance is this to us)?” that THAT is not the question being asked??
