IdeaShop workshops support teachers in implementing the latest teaching practices and theory by sparking creativity and student engagement through classroom-tested lessons and units.
Every lesson, strategy and tip presented in an IdeaShop has been developed by teachers and used in real classrooms. We've tweaked and refined our material to ensure the best possible outcome for both you and your students.
IdeaShop offers a variety of workshop sessions packed with creatively practical ideas and lessons. No icebreakers. No fillers. IdeaShops are 'practical development' that works!
