How to be Inspirational

Description

Is there a secret to being an inspirational teacher? Lecturer Trevor Wright offers his tips on balancing the different demands on teachers, helping them to develop inspirational pedagogy.

Through experience of teaching, Trevor, a senior education lecturer at the University of Worcester, has developed an approach called Dynamic Tension, which he believes can help everyone become an inspirational teacher.

He believes there are paradoxes in teaching - the expert versus the interactive teacher, the creative versus the structured teacher, the sustained versus eventful lesson - which create tensions in teachers' practice.

By considering how to balance these tensions within teaching practice, Trevor believes it is possible to become an inspirational teacher.
