Update me: Differentiation London, Monday 2 March 2015 Lack of attention to pedagogy, skills and current changes in geographical education can have a huge impact on the quality of geography teaching. Through ‘Update Me’ sessions, we will provide insight into the latest geographical thinking, link directly to governmental initiatives and changes and focus on raising the skills and knowledge base of geography teachers at every stage in their career.

Course programme This differentiation ‘Update me’ session will cover: • What is differentiation and why do we do it? • Evaluating your department’s differentiation provision • Different pupil needs and strategies to address them • Teaching strategies for mixed ability lessons, EAL and gifted students • Obstacles and opportunities This two hour session aims to provide teachers with a whistlestop tour of the highs and lows of differentiation, including the obstacles to good differentiation in the classroom and some strategies and ideas to introduce successful differentiation into your teaching. It will cover working with EAL and gifted students, as well as general mixed ability teaching. Whilst the subject is fairly generic, where possible David will use geographical examples to illustrate good differentiation techniques. This course is ideal for teachers who would like a refresher about methods of differentiation and why it is so important to get right, and also for those new to teaching or moving to a school where differentiation challenges are varied or complex.
