Abstract

We reflect on our experiences working with 35 Teach First Trainees in June and July 2020 in an entirely online environment. Trainees had had no opportunity to spend any time in a classroom or with young people before commencing on an 80% timetable in September, and we have (still) not met any of the trainees face to face. In this reflective piece we describe and reflect on the changes we made to our pedagogy, especially those which produced an unexpectedly rich and sophisticated discourse, as well as the challenges.
