The Science of Learning

To help students to learn effectively, teachers must understand and apply the science of learning.

This session will explore five principles that form the backbone to the science of learning and is for teachers who wish to improve their understanding and application in their classrooms.

Drawing on Willingham’s model of memory, each principle will be exemplified through a practical demonstration before an exploration of what the principle means. We will then consider the implications for our teaching.

This webinar is suitable for teachers of any subject and key stage.
