But it
should be
considered!
Promoting outstanding teaching
and learning
Know what you want.
Find out where you are.
Identify the gaps.
Address them.
What should you be looking for?
Ofsted cardsort
Divide the cards into two groups according to
which aspects of teaching and learning are easy
to evidence and which are more difficult.
Which are going well?
Which are not going well?
Which are a bit iffy?
What is your gut feeling about the
quality of T&L in your dept.?
Why?
Monitoring and evaluation
What strategies do you use to guide that “gut
feeling”?
Monitoring and evaluation strategies
On the list given, identify which strategies you use.
Draw this quadrant on a flipchart and assign them to
sections.
High impact
Low impact
Quick to do
Takes a lot of time
Evaluation not narrative

1. With your team – ask everyone to write on
notes what they think is working, not
working, and is so-so, and stick them on the
chart.
N.B
Things can be noted more than once and
everyone’s viewpoint is accepted. There must be
no judgment at this stage.

alternatives.

Problem solving, team building (PSTB)
What is it?
• It is first and foremost a structured approach to problem solving
• One of its greatest strengths is that the “Owner” of the issue will walk
away with an action plan
When would you use it?
• Whenever you have an issue or problem that requires a team solution
• Whenever you require a rigorous process to address an issue
• Use at the development stage after deepening the problem first with
Fishbone Analysis and/or Five Whys

PSTB – Problem solving, team building
Are there any rules?
