  1. How to be paper-light

    That’s a good a topic, as after doing Delta I struggle to see how going paper light can be achieved well. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the talk 🙁 Working at that hour.

  3. If students don’t achieve the lesson objectives does that mean the lesson and/or teacher should be judged negatively.

    Background: A recent ISI (external inspection) report stated that lesson plans need to include measurable learning objectives so that teachers’ performance can be assessed against the students’ achievement of those objectives. This implies that if students don’t achieve then we are directly responsible, and also that the teaching and learning process is comparable to a straightforward transaction.

    how much meta language do our students need, and at what level is it useful?
