Maximising Memory and the Science of Learning 3 day event

This event will take place between 1:30am and 4:30pm on 11/05/2021

Programme Dates: 11th May, 9th June & 1st July 2021. 

One of the hardest challenges in teaching is making sure that pupils remember. Fortunately, we have a wealth of evidence that can help us to find appropriate solutions. From our lessons, to our resources, to our curricula, cognitive science can help.

As the language of cognitive science becomes more familiar in schools, we also see an abundance of myths and misconceptions and there is a danger that this can become just the latest gimmick.

There are also challenges that the current Covid-19 situation has brought, so solutions which can mitigate for some of the learning loss are desirable.

This programme will explore the evidence on long-term learning, including models of memory and theories of how we learn.
Explore key concepts from cognitive science, including retrieval, elaboration, dual coding and spacing.
Share practical applications of principles from cognitive science to get the most out of tools for maximising retention.

By the end of the programme, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the evidence around memory, which they can use to implement effective strategies that benefit long term learning in their context.
