Over the past couple of years, NRICH have been running Teacher Inspiration Days. This year, we've also managed to secure some funding to run a day for NQTs. The aim will be to introduce the NRICH website and spend some time working on rich tasks and discussing how to use such tasks in the classroom. Here is my problem; it's been a while since I was an NQT and I'm struggling to remember what it was like in order to decide what sort of workshops would be of most use. Here are just a few thoughts I've had: Using rich tasks for the first time - where to start? How to structure a lesson or series of lessons working on open ended tasks Different ways to incorporate rich tasks into a topic - as introductions, consolidations, revision If you are an NQT, or you have an NQT in your department, what sort of outcomes would you want from a professional development day on the subject of rich tasks? Obviously we want the day to be a success but most of all we want to put on an event which is genuinely useful to participants. (If you think it's the sort of thing you (or a colleague) might be interested in, it will be on Friday June 24th, more details will appear on the NRICH site soon and will be sent out by email to all those registered on the NRICH mailing list.) Thanks in anticipation for any helpful comments Cross-posted to NQT forum too.
