1.30p.m. – 2.45p.m.

FREE online event for NASBTT Members

Delivered online via Zoom

With busy workloads, increased virtual learning and an ever-changing sector, NASBTT is pleased to offer members the opportunity to attend its online Espresso Shot Networking Events.

Designed to be a brief information exchange and networking session for members, these events are the perfect opportunity for a fast-paced session focussing on a key, relevant topic and provide the opportunity for members to engage with colleagues  over a virtual coffee or cuppa.


Great teaching – the requirement that every lesson, every day, for every class, is of the highest quality – should be the foremost aim of every teacher and school leader. Nothing you do matters more than this. Yet uncertainty persists about what constitutes evidence-based great teaching, how we can recognise it and, most important of all, how to get more of it. Uncertainty about how best to support new teachers to develop rapidly may be even greater.

In June we published the Great Teaching Toolkit: Evidence Review (available at www.greatteaching.com) to address the first of these uncertainties. A larger project is now underway, building a toolkit to help classroom teachers and school leaders address the other two.

In this session, Rob will present the evidence and ideas behind the Evidence Review, and outline the dimensions and elements of great teaching: aspects of teacher knowledge, skills, practices, or classroom environment, that make a difference to students’ learning. He will describe ongoing work to develop systems for giving teachers actionable feedback about their practices and for supporting their professional development. He will also offer opportunities for teachers, schools and Trusts to get involved.


  • Actionable: relevant to current contexts
  • Connected: join the discussion
  • Accessible: open to all
  • Fast-paced and convenient: engage over a virtual coffee or cuppa
