language of the event

Every teacher's dream is to have the full attention of all learners in their teaching. But it can be challenging to get and keep it. So, let's look at attention through a broader lens and work together to find and show ways to work with it. In this workshop, we will unpack what affects our learners' attention and use practical examples to try out how to get it in our hands and lead it exactly where we need it to go. We'll complement all this with wisdom from books and research and sharing of good practice.
