Steve was Director of Learning Communities at Discovery Education for 10 years, leading their Innovation and Strategy team and is the co-author of the book Untangling the Web: 20 Tools to Power Up Your Teaching.
For Day 1 there are 3 options dependent on your curriculum of interest.
IPC - Hear from CLPE, Jigsaw & Now Press Play in individual workshops and how they have collaborated with the IPC and our units.
IEYC - Workshops by Cosy Catalogue and ICan (the communication charity) on how they have collaborated with the IEYC. Also meet Anni McTavish - trainer, consultant and writer specialising in expressive arts, creativity, personal, social and emotional development and superheroes.
IMYC - Workshops (TBC) and IMYC updates
This year we have developed courses specifically for the Festival of Learning with the Heads of Curriculum and Accreditation. These courses consist of four sessions by the Heads of Curriculum and Accreditation and two sessions by schools sharing their implementation experiences.
The Leading the IPC course was developed for leaders who are leading the curriculum in their school. The course assumes that the delegate has completed the IPC Getting to Grips course or that they have implemented the curriculum in their school for some time, therefore have covered the basics. The course consists of two days of learning - day 1 covers good leadership practice and day 2 is specific to the curriculum - IPC.
The Implementing the IPC course for those who have just started using the IPC.
The World's Largest Lesson will also be leading a collaborative workshop within any IPC or Accreditation course as part of day 3.
