Being effective involves achieving alignment between your beliefs and values, and your practice, both individually and collectively
Have you unpacked your personal beliefs and values about education?
Using The Funnels of Influence (Aubrey-Smith & Twining, 2024) I can help you to make your tacit beliefs and values about education explicit.
Do you know which of the four main 'learning theories' your beliefs and values align with?
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.
Is there consistency between the pedagogical stances underpinning your organisation's policies and practices?
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.
How closely aligned are your staff's individual beliefs and values and your organisation's pedagogical stance?
I can support senior staff in working towards closer alignment between staff members' individual pedagogical stances and the organisation's pedagogical stance
