The Education Scotland Professional Learning and Leadership Team recognise that educators, particularly now, are extremely busy and are likely to be engaging with professional learning in a different way.

They wanted to provide a library of previously recorded seminars and sessions, categorised by theme, to allow you to access professional learning at a time that best suits you.

Some of the themes discussed in these recordings will be expanded upon in their online professional learning activities that you may wish to explore. The themes are:

This library will continue to be updated and added to throughout 2022.

Disciplinary Literacy CLPL Opportunities

Disciplinary Literacy 1 – An Introduction to Disciplinary Literacy
Monday 27th September at 4pm, Webinar. Course ID: 76134
Disciplinary Literacy 2 – Reading
Monday 25th October at 4pm, Webinar. Course ID: 76161
Disciplinary Literacy 3 – Writing
Monday 29th November at 4pm, Webinar. Course ID 76162

How do we get secondary pupils to read like a geographer, write like a biologist or talk like a mathematician? This series is for secondary practitioners who want to know what disciplinary literacy is and how it can be used in their teaching. Over the course of the three sessions, we will cover how pupils learn best when they are immersed in the vocabulary and nuances of their subject (session 1), with a specific focus on reading (session 2) and writing (session 3). Participants will be supported at every stage of the process as they trial and create subject-specific strategies to embed into their practice and help their pupils to reach their potential.

Sign up for each session via CPD Manager or contact John Sherry for more information.
