Teaching & Learning: Trust Innovation

At Lydiate Learning Trust, educational innovation concerns all stakeholders: the learners, teachers, support staff, parents/carers, educational administrators, researchers, and policy makers and requires active involvement and support.
To raise the quality of teaching, we want to enhance teacher education, professional development, and life-long learning to include attitudes, dispositions, teaching styles, motivation, skills, competencies, self-assessment, self-efficacy, creativity, responsibility, autonomy to teach, capacity to innovate, freedom from administrative pressure, best conditions of work, and public sustenance.

 

When considering the learners, we think of studying cognitive processes, identifying and developing abilities, skills, competencies and cultural capital. These include improving attitudes, dispositions, behaviours, motivation, self-assessment, self-efficacy, autonomy, as well as communication, collaboration, engagement, and learning productivity.

 

Therefore, as a Trust, we are continuously seeking ways to encourage innovation so that innovation can appear as a new pedagogic theory, methodological approach, teaching technique, instructional tool, learning process, or institutional structure that, when implemented, produces a significant change in teaching and learning, which leads to enhanced student learning and outcomes.
