Communicating research to support the evolution of teaching

Feedback comments from Teaching Leaders workshops

4th November 2019 at Ruislip High School by Jeremy Dudman-Jones

Comments following presentation to Year 11 students' parents

“Parents spoke to me at the end of the event to say how interesting it was and how useful they found it.”

“Jeremy was engaging interesting and knowledgeable. He made it easier to understand the brain than my Neurologist”

“thank you the information about brain maturation was especially interesting. I will better understand how my teenager now thinks”

“it was great to find out why my son finds it so difficult to get up in the morning, I will now be more sympathetic”

“I wish you were my teacher at school, such a fun and well thought out presentation.”

People enjoyed the talk hugely and felt both energised and stimulated to enquire further.  I have had some very positive comments.

Thank you for making the time to deliver your presentation on Monday to the PGCE Business and Economics cohorts.   As with previous years it was very well received and sparked some interesting discussions during the session afterwards.  I visited a student teacher in his placement school yesterday and he told me that he considered some of the ideas that you discussed in the planning/delivery of his lesson!!  I very much hope that you will be available next academic year in order to talk to the 2017-2018 cohorts.

I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you (and Alice and Helen) for coming to deliver at our three Challenge Days, we’ve really appreciated the work that you’ve put into the session and I know our Fellows have found the session really valuable.

The neuroscience workshop was outstanding and well delivered - I wish I could have spent all day here!

The neuroscience was again useful, perhaps it could have been a bit longer so we could delve deeper into how best we can help students learn.
