“Developing a Teachers’ Resource Webpage” (Area 6)

Branwen Bingle (IoE)

After a course presentation done by LGB charity Stonewall, our Primary Initial Teacher Education trainees identified a need for more support and resources to help them create inclusive learning environments. In order to support our trainee teachers in tackling prejudiced-based bullying and support a wide range of pupils (and teachers themselves) in the classroom we developed a SAP project to create a UW website in order to support trainees and newly qualified teachers (NQTs). A team of students identified themselves as participants and collated resources and sources, judging their suitability and evaluating content on the webpage, supervised and guided in this role by a staff member from the UW IoE Primary centre and a director from an LGBT charity. This presentation outlines the process undertaken, from students’ motivation for becoming involved to the launch and reception of the webpages, from the perspective of the participants themselves.
