Being effective involves achieving alignment between your beliefs and values, and your practice, both individually and collectively

Iceberg - only a fraction of our beliefs are explicit

Using The Innovative Pedagogy Framework (see Twining, 2018) I can help you to understand your pedagogical stance (i.e. which 'learning theory' your beliefs and values aligns with).

For a quick look at what your pedagogical stance is try out this activity.

Does your practice align with your pedagogical stance?

I use vignettes of different teachers' practice to illustrate how each pedagogical stance aligns with different pedagogical approaches and practices.

Iceberg - only a fraction of our beliefs are explicit

I lead workshops for senior leaders and other staff to help them identify the degree of alignment of the pedagogical stances underpinning their policies

I can conduct an 'alignment audit' to explore the degree of pedagogical alignment between your organisation's policies and practices.

Iceberg - only a fraction of our beliefs are explicit
