Effect Sizes – Using Graphic Organisers

During our best practice sharing day earlier this year, one of the workshops was a delivery of effect sizes within education and how as tutors by understanding them, they can impact our delivery.  I wanted to explore this further and try out different methods of teaching and what effect size might have the most impact on learners’ outcomes and understanding. 

With the continued focus of Ofsted on Teaching, Learning and Assessment, as an organisation we have been encouraged by our quality team to ensure the lessons are as participative as possible. The college have encouraged us to look at effect sizes and ensure the teaching methods we use are higher on the effect size table to support learner engagement.  I have chosen to concentrate on one methodology of teaching by using graphic organisers within my lessons.
