Download your Planning and Reflection Page

As reflection is a crucial part of any learning session, we have not only allowed time for this, but have also designed a reflection page using our unique “Learn-Differentiate-Evaluate-Motivate” model. With so much information to be shared in one day, this will allow you to walk away with a condensed summary of what will work for YOU in your setting and some clear goals for how you can make that happen! Please download the reflection page and bring it to the workshop with you printed out ready for your notes or ready to edit on your mobile device.
