The Brain and Learning for primary teachers
June 7, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Cognitive overload? Working memory? Retrieval practice?
Right now there are lots of ideas around about the brain and learning: but which are well-founded in research and useful in practice? Should the sciences of the brain – psychology and neuroscience – be informing primary teaching?
Find out about the Bath Spa University Institute of Education’s project as featured in a previous issue of Impact – the Journal of the Chartered College of Teaching and join colleagues for sandwiches and cake at this twilight event.
Q&A with experts: Dr Pete Etchells, Cognitive Psychologist, and & Dr Alison Lee, Neuropsychologist, will be available to help explain what is known, and what is still uncertain. There will also be time for you and colleagues to consider and ask them questions.
Find out how Bath Spa University Institute of Education are developing the science of learning in its Primary and Early Years PGCE and School Direct.
Share your views on what developments are needed in Initial Teacher Education and Continuing Professional Development.
