Event description


Who this is suitable for:

This course is suitable for all teaching staf, those in charge of T and L, middle and senior leaders.

TBQ (the big question) takes evidence of excellence in deep learning to form a concept that uses investigation and questioning as the key driver for the learning journey.

TBQ turns lesson planning on its head, employing a system that focuses explicitly on progress, empowering students to construct their own learning journey, their destination clear from the start with key signposts they can recognise along the way.

TBQ shifts teaching to learning. When combining the learning outcome and activity, a TBQ is posed that allows students to form and sca old their own success criteria. When executed e ectively, this removes the need for teacher heavy tick boxes which can inaccurately represent students’ learning.

TBQ is not a gimmick - it is a concept that reduces teacher workload, makes marking make sense and has proven outstanding impact upon progress.
