Are you learning as part of a group?

This is one of our most gratifying images - it dates from the first run of this course in 2015.

It shows Laura and colleagues discussing the key elements of hinge-point questions (in perhaps a slightly chilly southern hemisphere winter classroom). We’ll get to hinge-point questions later in the course!

We’re aware that some learners take the course together in their own self-organised study groups or as a teaching team. You can use the course to help structure discussions offline and support your professional development as a group. Follow this guidance to get the most out of the course together.

How will you use the course together?

If you are taking the course in a group we’d love to hear how you set it up and how you are getting on. Please use the Comments on this page to share your experiences. If you’d also be happy to have a conversation with us, including finding out about how you can contribute to the STEM Learning blog with your experience, then get in touch via onlinecpd@stem.org.uk. We have a case study template that will help you, and us, reflect on the way groups of teachers have engaged the course together.
