Rethinking Curriculum-Experiential Learning in Primary Schools
This is a webinar!
We hear from schools and practitioners that our primary curriculum is overfilled, disjointed and not giving our children the best opportunities in some cases.
We will bring together a group of expert practitioners and researchers to discuss experiential learning, with an opportunity for discussion and questions for all audience members to learn about the why, how and what next in the implementation of an experiential curriculum.
It will be particularly valuable to primary teachers, those involved in curriculum design more broadly, and all educators who want to learn about experiential curriculum in practice.
This is being shared with you as part of ‘Rethinking Curriculum’, a project aiming to support and equip teachers and school leaders with the knowledge and skills to identify, plan and implement curriculum development work in a sustainable, context specific and impactful approach.
This webinar will build upon the work by our partners on Rethinking Curriculum at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy and their literature review on experiential learning. Experiential Learning for Children Aged 4-14: A Rapid Evidence Assessment – UCL Discovery
About the session
This webinar is part of a series around curriculum enrichment in primary schools as part of the extensive project for the Chartered College, Rethinking Curriculum. This aims to support and equip teachers and school leaders with the knowledge and skills to identify, plan and implement curriculum development work in a sustainable, creative and place based approach. This will mean that all pupils will have access to an expansive, inspiring curriculum that connects them with local communities and enables them to lead healthy, fulfilled lives.
Our webinar series around curriculum enrichment aims to bring experts around curriculum implementation with a variety of foci from youth social action, play, oracy, pupil agency, sustainability and many more. This series will be brought to you over the academic year 2023-24 and will aim to share from experts and allow attendees to discuss and ask questions. You will also have resources from the project pilot made available to you in relation to the webinar topics.
Event attendees will have access not just to the event itself but to supporting materials and resources in order to start discussions in their settings.
