Steps to success with the EPQ: realising the value of digital resources

Guest speaker…

Dr Graham Gardner – EPQ Coordinator and librarian at Abingdon School, is the expert speaker in the latest of the JCS programme of webinars.

Graham has 14 years’ experience of supporting the EPQ taught skills programmes and supervising EPQ candidates. He has learned over those 14 years that the key challenge to the EPQ – for all candidates in schools and sixth form colleges – is finding sufficient quality information resources. This talk will therefore focus on realising the value of digital resources for this important and popular qualification.

Graham’s introduction to his talk…

Digital platforms have huge potential when it comes to the EPQ. Equally, however, many EPQ candidates struggle to make the most of the rich array of online content available to them.

Over the past ten years, I’ve revised and developed my idea of what effective guidance regarding use of digital platforms consists of. Effective guidance must go beyond emphasising the importance of information resources and providing instruction on generic online research skills, important though those things are.

If we are to maximise the likelihood of our candidates making good use of the platforms available to them – particularly the candidates least prepared for independent learning – we must embed specific digital resources into the EPQ taught skills program. In this webinar, I will show what that idea looks like in practice and how you might revise and develop your own guidance in the interests of increasing the chances of student success.

When will the webinar take place?

Thursday 9th November 2023 at 3pm (GMT).

Will there be a Q&A?

Yes. Time will be available at the end of Graham’s talk to ask him questions.

I want to attend but can’t make it on the day – what do I do?

Register anyway as we will be sending the recording to everyone who signs up.
