ELL Pedagogy LEARNING SERIES:
Dealing with Differentiation: Don’t Despair!
The word ‘differentiation’ can be off-putting to teachers. Often it is perceived as increasing our workloads
and complicating our lives, and we resist trying to implement it.
In this webinar, Laura McWilliams will help us:
Understand the concept of differentiation and how it can benefit both you and your students
Learn about the different ways in which learners can have varying needs and how to identify them
Discover practical strategies to make differentiation more manageable, even with low resources
Explore low-resource methods that you can use to differentiate instruction
Get equipped with the tools you need to take your teaching to the next level
