How the science of learning can shape how we teach.

What should educators know about how learning takes place? How might this be informed by the best available research?

Learning is the process that underpins all aspects of education. Over the last decades, our scientific understanding of how learning takes place, and the teaching strategies that can support it, has greatly improved.

In this evidence-informed and challenging session we will consider the practical implications of the science of learning for designing teaching and learning.

The outcomes for this session include:

  • Debunk the common misconceptions about how students learn
  • Understand why creating learning that ‘sticks’ and ‘transfers’ is so hard
  • Explore key theories in cognitive psychology that can shape teacher practice
  • Examine what motivates students to learn and persist
  • Highlight the importance of relationships for effective learning
  • Build confidence in engaging with evidence-based approaches
