Introduction to Complex Additional Support Needs for Practitioners

Description

This short course gives an introduction to the field of Complex Additional Support Needs (CASN) within the current framework of Scottish Education. This course will consider Scottish policy and how it relates to this unique group of young people and the ways in which their CASN present themselves in the classroom context. An overview of considerations (both practical and theoretical) for practitioners will give a rounded picture of what it is like to practise in this field, followed by pedagogical considerations to ensure that young people with CASN are offered equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of education and realise their capabilities. Examples of the practical considerations that will be covered include, individuality, the importance of postural care, and communication.  These will be linked to underpinning theory and data where appropriate.

The importance of professional networking will be highlighted, and suggestions will be offered to assist with the creation of a professional network via a selection of signposted opportunities to take forward. In addition, approaches to teaching, learning and relationship building such as intensive interaction, sensology and technological supports will be introduced. Participants will be guided towards further information on all of these.

Creating Feminist Classrooms 3: Menstrual Justice

Description

This session will appeal to anyone interested in contemporary debates on menstrual justice, including issues of ‘period poverty’, menstrual care and activism, the lived experience and lifecourse of menstruation and menopause, and  the place of menstrual justice across different classroom contexts. The Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Act (2021) established a Scotland-wide scheme to allow anyone who needs period products to get them free of charge, including in schools, colleges and universities. While a clear policy success, questions of menstrual justice surpass bathroom and classroom provisioning, as long politicised by feminist debates and activist campaigns.  Such debates and activisms have their place in the ‘feminist classroom’ as a site of learning about the range and breadth of feminist organising. Feminist debates on and approaches to ‘menstrual justice’ suggest new ways of unlearning stigma, with conversations extending to menstrual activism, menstrual blood, menstrual products and contemporary discussions of menstruation and menopause as ‘equality, diversity and inclusion’ issues in our workplaces and educational institutions. This session thinks about why menstruation matters in creating feminist classrooms.

Emotion Coaching: moving from behaviour management to emotion regulation approaches in practice

Description

The refreshed narrative of CfE (Education Scotland, 2019), places children and young people at the heart of education, recognising relationships as fundamental to learning. This training session introduces an approach of Emotion Coaching (Gottman, 1996), which identifies that emotions matter to learning and provides examples of how this may be facilitated in practice. Grounded in theory relating to emotion regulation, Emotion Coaching offers a practical, empathic and brain-nurturing approach to supporting children’s emotions and subsequent behaviours.  This course is suitable for adults working with children who wish to move away from traditional discipline and behaviour management techniques towards an emotionally regulatory approach.

Study Skills - Essentials

Description

Pupils of all ages need to develop good study habits, helping them to become successful, independent learners. However, most do not know how to study effectively because the process of learning is not intuitive, and effort only goes so far.

 

This session will cover the essentials of good study habits that can be applied to note-taking, revision, working for tests, review and consolidation work, and exam preparation. Drawing on the contemporary cognitive psychology of how people learn, this session will debunk certain popular myths and focus on well-evidenced study strategies that can be used by pupils of all ages and attainment levels.

Practical Approaches to Enhancing Inclusion in STEM

Description

The session considers practical steps to overcoming some of the barriers, identified by research, to full inclusion in STEM education. The practical approaches that will be illustrated use hands-on activities and the sharing of relevant resources with participants, so that they can evaluate which will be most useful in their own settings. The activities will NOT depend on having access to expensive, specialist equipment but focus on using ‘everyday’ items and materials.
