Teaching to All Abilities/Differentiating Learning

15 June 2022


One size doesn’t fit all. We need to make it ‘different’ for each learner targeting the right amount of support and challenge for all abilities. That’s what is called ‘differentiation.’

A group of learners aren't necessarily at the same starting level. Teaching to all abilities begins with finding out and starting where your learners are at. What can we do to increase and improve the knowledge and skill base of every learner, regardless of where they start?

In this interactive workshop, we will explore strategies to find out learners starting points, adjust content being discussed and the process used to learn it so that everyone can be competent, with examples of how to go about differentiating (teaching to all abilities) the learning and teaching.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Identifying where learners are at
  • Adjusting the methods used to teach
  • Providing choice for learning
  • Examples of differentiation strategies
