DSPL3 Annual SENCO Conference

When:   9.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.  on Friday 19th October.
Where: at Fanham’s Hall, Ware
Rob Long will be challenging our thinking with a day themed on ‘Punished by Rewards’.
Motivating learners to learn remains a key challenge for all school staff. Evidence shows that an over-reliance on rewards and punishments can have the opposite effect to that intended – resulting in a ‘what’s in it for me’ attitude.
This day will explore: 
  • the problems with rewards and punishments as motivators
  • motivation – theory and practice
  • extrinsic v. intrinsic motivation
  • promoting responsibility and addressing learner needs
  • creating the intrinsic classroom
Delegates will understand: 
  • the problems with mechanistic responses to motivate learners
  • the nature and function of motivation in the classroom
  • negative influences on motivation, mastery v. helplessness and mindsets
  • the role of key learner needs for active classroom involvement
  • evidence-based principles and practices for promoting intrinsically motivated learners
The intended outcome for children and young people will be: 
  • that classrooms are designed to promote intrinsically motivated learners who rely less on extrinsic consequences
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, please click here to apply.

Facilitated Solution Circle Sessions Spring Term 2018  PAST EVENT

A solution circle is a group tool for helping people become ‘unstuck’ from a problem or situation by using resources from the people in that group. Each circle follows a set structure and takes just under 30 minutes to complete (see http://www.inclusion.com/ttsolutioncircle.html). When solution circles have been used with SENCos and teachers in the past, they have been found to be an effective tool for moving a situation on through sharing practice and ideas. People who have participated in the group (rather than presented the problem) have also found it beneficial for their own practice.

Educational Psychologists will be facilitating solution circles at the following venues in the spring term for SENCos in DSPL3:

Date Time Venue Facilitator
Wednesday 17th January 9:30-11:00 Thorley Hill SpLD Base Katy Cole
Friday 2nd February 9:30-11:00 Millfield First School, Buntingford Katie Paxton
Monday 12th March 9:30-11:00 Venue in Hertford or Ware TBC Saffron Steele

 

SENCos can book onto any session. The maximum number of participants for each session will be 12 and the minimum for a group to work will be 4. To book a place, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis, please email me:   dspl3manager@sele.herts.sch.uk
