Webinar Duration: 1 hour 3 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, subject leaders and teaching staff with advice and practical guidance on applying cognitive science theory in the classroom to enhance teaching practice and long-term learning.
The value of a classroom approach which is informed by cognitive science (in simple terms, understanding how the mind works) has been the subject of much interest and research in recent years. A report from the Education Endowment Foundation confirms that ‘theories from basic cognitive science imply principles for effective teaching and learning, albeit in specific contexts’.
In this webinar, Matthew Bromley, education writer and adviser with over twenty years’ experience as teacher, headteacher and principal, explores the process of learning from a scientific perspective, and explains how teachers can draw upon this to help embed secure learning in the minds of pupils.
