Create full student engagement with Kagan Structures—simple yet powerful cooperative learning instructional strategies. Supported by a large body of scientific research, and proven effective in countless classrooms, schools, and districts, this revolutionary way to teach is transforming teaching and learning. Come and experience the power of Kagan Structures. See how easy it is to use teamwork and pairs to create a greater level of engagement than you imagined possible, even for your reluctant learners. We're not talking about group work. We're talking the real deal, and knowing the difference is the difference between engaging some and engaging all students. When we engage all students, they all learn more. They have fewer discipline problems. And because the structures are so cooperative and interactive, they work wonders for students' social skill development. Come and learn easy ways to use Kagan Structures as a part of every lesson, creating greater engagement, deeper understanding of the content, improved retention, and greater liking for class and content.

The rationale for doing Classbuilding and Teambuilding is manyfold. Class and Teambuilding is great for getting students acquainted with one another at the beginning of the year.

Class & Teambuilding throughout the year promotes the liking and respecting of teammates and classmates. Students interact with one another in an open, nonthreatening environment creating mutual support and promoting self-esteem. Students are active, and the classroom becomes more fun and energising. Students enjoy the class and the school more. The classroom runs smoothly and less time is spent on management and more time on active learning. Students learn lifelong interpersonal skills and are better prepared to function in an increasingly pluralistic society. And, the world is a little nicer place because of it. Good enough?

Workshop Highlights:
  • Class & Teambuilding is great for students getting acquainted with each other.
  • Students need the opportunity to get out of their seats and to interact with their classmates in a positive way
  • Class & Teambuilding can energise your class at moments of low energy
  • Students feel greater sense of self-worth
  • Students find they have things in common, this builds value networks as the students develop respect for each other
  • Class & Teambuilding creates a non-threatening environment as conflicts are reduced and discipline problems drop away
  • Class & Teambuilding is FUN and creates greater liking for class and school
  • Class & Teambuilding helps to create the Inclusive classroom in which all students feel they are valued members.

The Kagan In-School Trainer Certification programme has been re-structured to support elements of effective staff development and school improvement. The real goal of staff development is to create systematic change that positively impacts student learning over time. It is essential that any new innovation be part of a structured school improvement process that includes training, monitoring, support, and resources.

The primary focus of the trainer certification programme will be to train school trainers in schools/educational establishments where Cooperative Learning has been chosen as a school/establishment-wide initiative with the full support of the Head and Senior Management Team and the school/establishment has been trained in at least Day 1 by a T2TUK/KaganUK trainer. It is strongly recommended that one of the SMT have attended the Leaders’ Blueprint Course

Careful consideration has been given to research on staff development. The set of components below enhances the transfer of skills from the workshop to implementation in the classroom. This provides the foundation and the credence for those wishing to transfer their skills and present training workshops to their school/establishment’s staff.

Places on this course are awarded strictly by successful application.
