Cognitive Science Investigators Strategies Study Skills

This workshop aims to give delates an understanding of the evidence behind a range of key learning strategies incuding retrieval practice, spaced practice and dual coding.  Practical ways will be presented on how these strategies can be used to support students in learning more efficiently and effectively.  Delegates will feel equipped to pass these strategies on to the students they work with in order to prepare them for their further education studies.  The event will be suitable for teachers, tutors and SENCos. Presenters:  Jack Swales and Tom Freeman bring over 20 years of teaching experience to this workshop on the cognitive science of learning.  They both work at Oriel High School, a large 11-18 comprehensive school in Crawley. Jack is the Director of Learning for teacher training and continuing professional development.  His particular interest is bridging the gap between the science of learning and classroom practice.  He teaches Physics and Psychology and GCSE and A-level and has been inspired by the work of the Learning  Scientists to bring research-based evidence into his teaching and learning.

Tom is currently a teacher of Psychology and Physical Education.  He has taught sports psychology and the acquisition of skills for over ten years as well as Psychology for the last three.  He has previously been head of a learning community, specialising in behaviour and the progression of pupils' learning.  It is through these roles that he has been keenly interested in the subject of memory and improving performance.  He too looks at how theories based around these topics can be implemented on a day-to-day basis within a school environment. Please feel free to spread the word. You can find a copy of the flyer here. Doors open for registration and coffee at 9 a.m. ready for the event to start at 9.30 a.m. There will be a refreshment break mid morning and the event will finish at 12.30 p.m.
