Details

The Department for Education (DfE) is working with schools to understand how they are adapting their teaching practice for remote education. Schools have shared a range of lesson plans annotated with tips and ideas they have found useful when teaching remotely.

The purpose of the lesson plans is to help teachers consider how they might adapt their teaching practice for the remote context.

The examples are intended as a source of ideas, not as teaching resources or lessons the department expects schools to teach. They do not reflect departmental endorsement of any particular approach to remote teaching.

The department does not expect teachers to create formal lesson plans.

Remote teaching webinars

Some of the schools that created the lesson plans have run webinars that discuss their approach to remote teaching in more depth. They explore remote teaching strategies and techniques using examples from science lessons (primary) and music and modern foreign languages lessons (secondary).

These webinars took place live on 6 and 8 October 2020, with questions from the audience. You can watch the recordings on the DfE YouTube channel:
