For the past five years, CamTalk has explored dialogic practices in the secondary school (age 11-18). This project has produced of an online PPD programme, and later conducted an evaluation of the impact of that course on secondary dialogic practices in various subjects.

The five-year project, funded by Esmée Fairbairn, aims at:

  • Exploring the role of dialogic teaching and learning in successful secondary classrooms to implement policy recommendations
  • Focusing on practitioner research to explore dialogic approaches to assessment, and to specific subject areas
  • Developing a nationally available CPD course by 2012: a blended learning programme delivered through online course materials and discussion, e-portfolio development, and occasional conferences
  • Developing a network of international partners for cooperation and research comparison
