Would your school/setting (wherever it is in the world!) be interested in hosting a Collaborative Learning workshop - online or face to face?

The project has been running resources development workshops for many years now. We have been very grateful to Ethnic Minority Achievement teams and schools for supporting them and publicising them locally. As a result of these workshops we are able to increase the number of activities online, which then of course get used in more and more schools.

Before the pandemic we organised them in a variety of ways. We are non-profit and only need to try to cover costs. The EMA team or school has often provided a space for free. We have publicised the workshops across administrative boundaries. When we run cross LA workshops we have run them from 9.30 or 10.00 am to 3.00 pm to allow for travel. We also experimented with weekday half day workshops starting after lunch and going on till 6ish and Saturday workshops starting at 10am and finishing with lunch. We have also been experimentlng with online preparation before the workshop and post workshop follow up development groups. You can see this work on our Work in Progress pages. Online work has not been so productive because the creative spark is more difficult to kindle but we persist.

We have also run workshops in other countries including the USA, Canada, Denmark and India. Normally the morning session is hands-on trying out strategies and the afternoon provides opportunities for planning new activities in partnership. We then complete the activities and put them online for everyone to access.

We also run CPD for schools on EAL and the development and management of talk.
