Lesson Study: Lost in Translation?

How can the Japanese phenomenon of Lesson Study be adapted to work in the English school setting?

The Japanese concept of Lesson Study is experiencing a significant boost in popularity in the UK. However, the lack of English-language literature on this innovative CPD model means it’s difficult to know whether we are really applying it to its full potential.

In this knowledge bank webinar, Sarah will explore the key elements of Lesson Study and consider how it can be best adapted to work in the English school setting while retaining all that made it so successful in Japan.
