We’re proud to be working with partners from across the sector to deliver the Summer Series: a programme of free webinars to support teachers and school leaders through, and beyond, the coronavirus outbreak.

In our latest session, Ambition Institute’s Dean for Learning Design, Peps Mccrea, explores motivation: what is it, and how can we boost it when pupils return to classrooms?

Peps is joined by Caroline Spalding, Future Leader and Assistant Headteacher in Derbyshire. Watch back as they discuss:

  • Why is motivating pupils important?
  • How does motivation work?
  • What evidence-informed methods for boosting motivation can teachers and school leaders use as they begin to welcome more children back to classrooms?
