This forum is an opportunity for teachers to meet to discuss developments in teaching and learning.

The concept behind the group is to engage in pedagogical discussion on the challenges facing teachers today.   For example, there is an ever increasing demand to integrate creativity into our curriculums; to have our curriculums as skills focused as they are content focused and to teach through IT or 1 to 1 programmes.  The Learning Forum is an opportunity to share and discuss the impact this is having and what we are doing about it.  

The aims of the group is

  • to discuss pedagogical development and change. 
  • To share best practice in the fields of teaching and learning
  • To share models of implementation for Approaches To Learning 
  • To share ways in which schools are meeting the demands of the learner.
