Have you heard about techniques like ‘dual coding’ and ‘retrieval practice’ but want the time to explore what they are and how they can improve learning?
Do you want to attend a course where the ideas are modelled and demonstrated so you will know what to do in your own classroom?
Do you want to find out about the broader implications for learning from cognitive science?
As an author of ‘Cognitive Load Theory: A handbook for teachers’ Steve Garnett (course leader) is well placed to share how ideas from cognitive science can have a powerful impact on lessons. The session will be super practical and light on the theory though colleagues will still leave the session clear as to what they could do with their pupils and why. The ideas do not require a massive increase in workload, instead, it’s more about small adjustments and ‘tweaks’
All our 3-hour online workshops include:
practical classroom-ready ideas and resources showing how to embed the strategies being shared
small group size to facilitate interaction and full engagement
group/pair work and discussion with the tutor
