#UKEdChat session 521 – We are all familiar with the idea of behaviour for teaching. A quiet class which allow the teacher to monologue at the front of the classroom until the student is giving permission to speak or do. So far, so Victorian.

The idea of behaviour for learning is a little more subtle, with the idea that behaviour strategies maximise learning. In many cases this will be the same, with respectful listening and turn taking at its heart when in a group, and maintaining a productive, but engaging learning environment in which to discover and explore. Yet the focus is shifted from making the teacher’s life easier, to making the student’s learning easier. There is an expectation that learners will be active in their learning and ask questions, and the behaviour strategies are in place to ensure this doesn’t descend into chaos.

In this #UKEdChat discussion on Thursday 17th September 2020 at 8pm (UK) we discussed what behaviour for learning means, how it can be deployed and sharing best practice.
