The Art of Enquiry Teaching

What, Why & How: When Big Ideas Drive the Curriculum - an Early Excellence Conference led by Kath Murdoch

Description

Join us for this special event led by the highly regarded international consultant Kath Murdoch, who will bring new insight and a wealth of practical strategies to support enquiry-based learning in YR, Y1 & Y2 and beyond.

Kath has inspired teachers around the world to put children at the heart of their learning by demonstrating that when children have autonomy and control in their learning, they achieve beyond our expectations.

Through her highly dynamic and engaging style Kath will: 

  • Explore what true enquiry is and how to design learning experiences with enquiry in mind

  • Explain how to bring a stronger enquiry stance to classroom practice and why it is such a powerful approach to teaching and learning.

  • Share practical strategies from primary classrooms of effective ways for teachers to stimulate, guide and direct an enquiry approach to learning

  • Explain how opportunities for authentic literacy and numeracy learning are enhanced through an enquiry approach

  • Consider how teachers observe, assess and monitor children’s progress to ensure all pupils develop relevant knowledge and skills through real, meaningful contexts

  • Demonstrate the impact of a broad curriculum, active learning and outstanding teaching


Kath’s style is refreshingly practical, inclusive and always connected to the real world of teaching. Her presentations are always inspirational and directly applicable to the classroom.

Throughout the conference Kath will share with us her passion for enquiry-based methodologies that developed through her fascination of how pupils construct their understandings and the ways in which their questions and big ideas can drive the curriculum. She will share many examples from a range of primary classrooms, helping us to explore just what it is that skilled teachers DO to effectively activate, support and extend enquiry.

Kath will also demonstrate how enquiry works and impacts on outcomes looking closely at the impact of teaching approaches on schools’ assessment procedures.  She will raise questions for discussion around how schools can shape assessment in ways that reflect their principles and practice, whilst securing the information they must have about children’s progress.

Kath will be leading a full day conference at our National Centre, Huddersfield, and she will also deliver a second live online event – a recorded version of this will also be available.
