SchemeofWorkCL 26 March with questions


  1. Play the slideshow of the presentation from the link here: SoW session recording final  You should be able to see the slides and hear the audio.
  2. Pause the video whenever there is an activity
  3. Join in with the activities – you can do this on your own, but we recommend doing it with a colleague as you can get a good conversation going.
  4. As you go through the slides and activities you will be writing your scheme of work.   By the end you will have completed the scheme of work – you may just want to type up the notes you have on post-its, to stop them getting lost.

Once you have used your scheme of work with your group, we’d love to hear your feedback.  Was it easier to write? Was it a useful document for you, the tutor?  Did the learners benefit from having a well-planned journey through their learning?  What adjustments would you make for next time?  Did you use any innovative or creative ways to store the information, other than writing it up in a word document?  Please use the comments box below to share your feedback.
