METACOGNITIVE SKILLS

AND POWERFUL PERSONAL LEARNING RESOURCES

Intervention, innovation and impact

This full day session provides a clear outline along with practical examples in all subjects based on Metacognitive approaches to teaching and learning. Learning how to learn is widely regarded as a low-cost high-impact intervention which can benefit all pupils.

The course will be delivered by Chris Williams who worked alongside teams of primary and secondary teachers over the last 9 months developing transferable techniques which make an immediate and sustained impact on learning outcomes. All methods and approaches can be used in all subjects and at all levels. There is a wealth of content on this world-class training course which makes learning paramount and is built on evidence-based approaches at its foundations.


Chris's work is personally endorsed by Dr Reshan Richards, pioneer in the fields of assessment and educational technology used as a tool to impact on learning outcomes, and creator of the award winning app "Explain Everything"
