Ian Warwick on independent learning
A workshop with Ian Warwick which offers practical strategies on how to stress the big ideas and concepts, how not to become ambulatory google, how to give feedback on best work only, how not to reward ‘second best’ student endeavours and how to work with students to offer more effective peer feedback.
Stuart Kime on the science of learning
Stuart discusses some key research findings presented in the Great Teaching Toolkit Evidence Review. These findings suggest that elements of effective classroom practice can be enhanced by teachers knowing more about how pupils learn and applying this knowledge in the classroom; addressing this, Stuart identifies and discusses a handful of key ideas informed by research in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, and explain why he thinks teachers should know about them.
