Special no-cost virtual events will explore current topics including inclusive learning, delivering an enriched curriculum and meeting new RSHE requirements. Guests include TV presenter Diane Louise Jordan.
Discovery Education – the leader in curriculum-aligned digital resources, engaging content and professional learning for classrooms worldwide – is launching a series of no-cost virtual events aimed at helping educators across the UK address some of the most important topics in education.
As the new term gets underway, this dynamic new professional learning programme will inspire teachers to re-imagine learning while equipping them to deal with the challenges of today’s classrooms. With over 20 events on offer between April and July, educators can choose from a wide range of sessions which can be joined live or viewed on demand at a time that suits them best.
