As practitioners, I am sure that we can all recall the time when we taught that great lesson on a Monday, yet, by Tuesday, the pupils’ knowledge appeared to have simply evaporated overnight!
“Cognitive Science principles of learning can have a real impact on rates of progress in the classroom.” EEF, 2021
In the first session, we will explore the concept of ‘whole brain’ learning as an evidenced-based technique for improving retention, recall, and securing learning by locking knowledge into the long-term memory bank so that pupils’ learning lingers.
Session 2: Thursday 26 May 2022, 4.00 pm – 5.30 pm
In the second session, delegates will get the opportunity to observe and discuss how whole cognitive science strategies can be built into a unit of work in a foundation subject.
In between sessions 2 and 3, delegates will teach a unit using the recommended strategies and conduct Pupil Book Study to evaluate the extent to which the learning has been retained.
Session 3: Monday 20 June 2022, 4.00 – 5.30 pm
The third session will give delegates the opportunity to evaluate the trialled strategies, share pupils’ work with colleagues, and to reflect on the results from Pupil Book Study.
Trainer: Emma Adcock
- To understand the conditions for effective learning.
- To know how research from cognitive science can impact the quality of learning in your classrooms.
- Discuss successful approaches to enable you to create connected learning
- Look at sustainable strategies to support getting learning to ‘stick’
Outcomes: To enable teachers to better understand how they can create sequences of learning that pupils will remember.
Recordings of the sessions and resources will be available for your use in school.
The cost is per person.
