Classroom Displays Courses 13

The Classroom Display Course

Update: the next course starts January 2013

The course is ideal for anyone who wants to know more about designing effective classroom displays. There are usually a mix of teachers and teaching assistants, both primary and secondary, from the UK and elsewhere on the course.

We will cover all the basic topics to help you become more confident about making displays in your classroom.

The course content for each week is:
An introduction to the Classroom Displays Group on Flickr and other sites you might find useful.
Week 1 – why we have displays and starting to look at displays as learning objects. A video about why we make displays. Tasks relating to this subject
Week 2 – design guidelines and related slide show & design tasks.
Week 3 – the use of colour in displays and mounting work for display, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 4 – choosing lettering and fonts for displays, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 5 – interactive displays, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 6 – adding 3d elements to displays, slide show with examples & tasks

The lessons will be on a password protected private site where you can also leave comments, ask questions etc. I also give feedback on completed tasks.

The course cost £20 GBP and I use Paypal or Google Checkout to collect the payment. You can pay by clicking on the Buy Now button  here or on the sidebar:

    Hi, I’m interested in the course, what is the commitment in terms of time? Also, what do the tasks consist of? I’m currently a student and I have just finishedmy second year. Thanks.

      Hi Sarah, the time commitment is around an hour a week. The tasks are fairly short, relate to the weekly topic, and can be done whether you are in school or not. For example you might be asked to print out a piece of work and decide how you would mount it, or to look at different displays and identify the learning objectives.

      Hi Iffat, as I said to Sarah, you don’t have to be in school to complete the course. I provide examples and scenarios for the tasks.

    hello,i want to find out if the training is online and can i register from nigeria

    • Linda Post author

      Hi, the training is online but I have had real difficulties with people in Nigeria being able to use Paypal. This makes it very hard for you to do the course.

      Hi Cherie
      Yes, the April course has started. I’ve just started booking for the next course which starts mid-May. The learner is expected to read the course materials, join in discussions and complete a couple of practical tasks each week.

    I’m interested in this course. However, I am not a teacher yet but a student in my final year. Is it possible for me to take this course? And will we be awarded with a certificate ?

    Thank you.

      Hi Maria, I have had students on the course before who seem to have got a lot from it. However your final year is a busy time. Are you sure you want the extra commitment? You would be very welcome on the course and yes, I do provide a certificate for those people who complete the tasks. Regards, Linda

  • Mary Garry

    Just wondering what times to courses will be run or will the content be available at any stage?

    • Linda Post author

      Hi Mary
      The course is run via a private, password protected web site. You have access for up to 7 weeks. Lessons take the form of blog posts, posted weekly, so you can access them at any time. At the end of the course you get a file with all the lessons and your contributions. Hope this makes it clearer.
