Sessions 1 to 5 run for two hours each including one hour plenary session and one hour group session (intervened by refreshments).

In the group sessions, discussion is facilitated by expert teaching staff from each of the represented schools. This provides you with an opportunity to discuss issues with your peers, and explore the ways in which they relate to their own teaching practice and experience.

Session 6, the final session, will focus on the principles of blended learning and the LMS. As part of the final session all participants must complete a short online teaching reflection (through the TDP blackboard site) within one week.
