This programme puts the emphasis on quality classroom practice. It helps teachers to learn from research about which pedagogies are ‘two for one’ – i.e approaches which develop academic knowledge as well as wider skills and qualities.
Teachers are supported through an action research framework to plan, trial and evaluate the impact of the approach in their classroom. At the end of the year, they present their progress and share their learning with others at our Summer Conference.
You can watch interviews with WE Lab Classroom participants and experts on this page. You can also download a research paper by Benjamin Strawbridge on his metacognition action research cycle with WE Lab Classrooms.
TWO FOR ONE PEDAGOGIES
What are ‘two-for-one’ teaching and learning approaches?
In 2018/19, WE Lab Classrooms partnered with The Chartered College of Teaching. This provided participants with the additional benefit of free membership of the college, enabling further access to research and a supportive community of peers.
We have also partnered with IRIS Connect to give practitioners the ability to review and discuss practice virtually.
WE will continue to work with specialist partners that can empower teachers to effectively trial evidence-informed pedagogies in their classrooms.
Lab Classroom participants are supported throughout their trial by expert practitioners and researchers. These strand leaders act as an experienced, ‘critical friend’ to offer advice, demonstrate best practice and share relevant research around their particular area of pedagogy.
Places are included in membership for WE schools.
£395 pp for non-WE member schools
£295 pp for partners
