Essential reading for anyone interested in starting a Learning Round. Focus on the language is key!! This reinforces my findings – one and a half years spent working on using the descriptive voice before launching into the round for real just shows how important it is to get this bit right. Timescale is another eye-opener here: a years’ worth of observations and debriefings before moving on to the next level of work? Are we rushing things too much? Trying to get it all done in a morning’s observation, afternoon debrief then next steps thrashed out a few weeks later might not be doing the process justice. What’s your view?
