Learning Pioneers’ courses provide a welcoming, inspiring step into developing meaningful, purposeful and joyful pedagogy. They are designed to give you plenty of food-for-thought and the space to warmly reflect on your own practice.

Each course is divided into modules which give you practical and easy-to-implement steps to transform your practice.

James Nottingham and Becky Carlzon help you get to grips with impactful ways to develop a relish for challenge in your classroom.

Throughout this course, you will explore tweaking your language and mindset to articulate challenge, adapting your classroom environment, using tools and adjusting your lesson structure to encourage challenging learning. Be warned! Some of these adjustments might be challenging, but it wouldn't be a very good "challenge" course, would it?!
