About the Webinar

This webinar will provide headteachers, curriculum leaders, subject leads and teachers with practical advice and guidance on how to implement the research and evidence supporting Cognitive Load Theory (CLT).

Cognitive Load Theory is becoming increasingly important in schools. Ofsted used CLT in the development of the current Education Inspection Framework (EIF) and the DfE Early Career Framework, cites that teachers should be supported to develop and learn how to explicitly teach pupils in metacognitive strategies and how to plan, monitor, evaluate and support independence and academic success.

It has been found that teachers who successfully manage their students cognitive load, can help to reduce the demands on their student’s working memory so that they can learn more effectively.

In this webinar, award-winning author and expert in evidence-informed classroom practice, Andy Tharby, discusses how schools can successfully implement CLT into curriculum planning and develop their teaching and learning to promote better educational outcomes for children.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what Cognitive Load Theory is and what influence it has had on Ofsted and DfE frameworks, particularly in relation to curriculum requirements.

  • Recognising the different roles of working and long-term memory and their impact on effective learning.

  • Identifying the three different forms of cognitive load and understanding how to successfully manage intrinsic, extraneous and germane cognitive load.

  • Recognising how CLT can be used to improve lesson planning and classroom delivery to enable better pupil outcomes.

  • Using CLT in curriculum design and the implications of CLT on distance and blended learning.
