Meet the Expert - Dr Debra Kidd

"We’re pedagogical activists who can change the future so hope, don't mope, reform, don't moan."

The Lion Alliance brings you an afternoon with Dr Debra Kidd

1pm - 4:30pm / 3pm - 4:30pm

Monday 14th June 2021


Debra is rare in that she has experience in every phase of education from nursery and EYFS all the way through to FE, including her recent appointment as an Associate Lecturer in the PGCE programme at Leeds Beckett University where she supports international students. She combines this vast experience, especially looking at literacy, oracy and the power of the Arts, with a clear view on what education is all about and the willingness to speak truth to power through various platforms including national TV.

SESSION 1: Adventures in Learning
Drawing on creative pedagogies such as the Mantle of the Expert, and highlighting the academic research that supports them, Debra will offer many practical tips for nourishing creativity in the classroom and ways to generate ideas that will get teachers and pupils excited about learning.

SESSION 2: A Curriculum of Hope
Debra will explore how good curriculum design can empower schools to build bridges between their pupils’ learning and the world around them.
