Learning outcomes include:

  • Understanding the range of common student behaviours that function as strategies to change their environment, or their position within that environment, to reduce distress or discomfort

MAKING IT STICK: THE SCIENCE OF LEARNING AND RETENTION

MT GAMBIER - SOUTHGATE MOTEL

ALL SCHOOL STAFF IN MAINSTREAM PRIMARY, MIDDLE AND SECONDARY SCHOOKS, particularly teachers and other staff involved in curriculum and program planning

PRESENTED BY KYMBERLY LOUISE, BEHAVIOURAL SCIENTIST

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in subject curriculum planning. This workshop is particularly suited to attending as a team in order to use the activity components of the session to develop strategies suitable for your site. The workshop will provide information drawn from cognitive science research about effective teaching and study strategies. By implementing evidence based strategies, and explicitly teaching those strategies to students as study skills, students will face fewer barriers to learning which may increase motivation to engage with learning.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Developing an understanding for how the human brain learns
  • Understanding “learning modalities” and how this differs from “Learning Styles”
  • Differentiating between our preferences for the way we learn, our instincts and assumptions about how we learn, and the reality of how we learn
  • Developing strategies to use in your practice to increase learning, retention, and engagement for your students
