  • 1.Learning outcomes on flip chart Attendees will gain some understanding of the Common Inspection Framework and key role of learner experience Attendees will understand significance of lesson observation Attendees will gain knowledge of grading of lessons Attendees will understand aims of Lelops project 2. Introductory introductions -who am I ?New to college, not aufait with college policies/procedures -please correct or take with pinch of salt who are they ? what do they want from the session ? Need help..............some questions 3. Sense of humour
  • Lelops handout
  • How they are going to investigate learner experience What are the grades Where is the key divide ? (4/5) A bit unfair ?
  • Can be confusing e.g. 4 satisfactory teaching grade, unsatisfactory curriculum grade
  • Motivation issue here Good point to break for coffee
  • This is new - three elements what is teaching ?
  • Only some basic points handout to elaborate ?
  • What is learning ? Problematic - can you have good grade for teaching and poor grade for learning or vice versa ?
  • Question What is common to all the key questions ? Significant change cf Lewisham issue NB -old story -not observing you (students) but me - not exactly the truth
  • Cf last question - not so - can be crucial -e.g.'s of lessons observed last week what is attainment ? Different to teaching/learning e.g level 3 class work well below - pulled down grade level 1 class well above -pushed up grade (Where schemes of work come in - so observer can see where students should be at at that point of course) At this point - look at Bexley model Raise issue of Gestalt v. Quantitative
  • Feedback -verbal or post it or flip chart
  • Any experiences useful e.g. Colour coded examples
  • Post it notes Hopefully we have learnt something about the new CIF the significance of learner experience, the critical role of lesson observation, how lessons are graded, what might constitute a good lesson or presentation and some ways it might be improved, what Lelops is trying to achieve, the importance of feedback, better ways of doing it, what support actions might follow and some suggestions to ensure you don't drop into the dreaded 5s. Hopefully reduced fear of inspection and observation Presentation so no homework –no next lesson
