TeachMeet Collaborate Park High School

Page history last edited by helene 6 years, 2 months ago


(Sign up instructions at the bottom of this page)




This teachmeet, a collaboration between Park High, Canons High and Bentley Wood schools in Harrow, has twin aims:


  1. To share experiences of effective collaborative working. Contributors will give eight minute presentations to explain the ideas behind their collaborative working, their actions, the results and the impact upon their students, staff and schools. 
  2. To bring teachers, departments and schools together in new collaborative ventures. Contributors will have five minutes in which to pitch ideas behind a proposed collaboration, explain suggested actions and identify intended outcomes and impact to the audience.


We will start by thinking about factors that contribute to successful collaborations. This will help potential projects within the room identify ways in which their future collaborations can be research-rich, methodologically sound and demonstrably effective. To that end, we are very happy to welcome Matt Innis, Subject Leader for History and Economics teacher at Paddington Academy (Wetminster), who will talk about his own collaborations, notably with NFER; United Learning and NFER have developed and managed a research project jointly to investigate diferent approaches Unitd Learning schools have to using evidence to inform their teaching practice. Matt will talk about some of the benefits and challenges of working together.


At the end of the presentations, there will be an opportunity for all attendees to meet with those giving presentations to find out more about their past collaborative ventures or an opportunity to meet with those giving pitches and make connections that will lead to future collaborative projects between schools.


A biannual event, it is our hope that ideas pitched at the first Teachmeet Collaborate will lead to successful cross-school collaborative work that will become presentations at future events hosted by our three schools. In this manner we believe that TMCollaborate can generate a virtuous circle of school-to-school collaborative networks that enrich the professional capital of those working in our schools.


As TMCollaborate has pedagogy at its heart, possible areas of focus might include collaboration in areas such as curriculum planning, questioning for analysis, marking and feedback strategies.


We hope you can join us on Monday 14th July and that it is the start of some great collaborative journeys.
