School Holiday Workshops

MAKING IT STICK: THE SCIENCE OF LEARNING AND RETENTION

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS - NORTHERN VENUE - COOPERS ALEHOUSE, GEPPS CROSS

STAFF IN MAINSTREAM PRIMARY, MIDDLE AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS - including subject coordinators, classroom teachers, and support staff

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 few 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

UNDERSTANDING FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOUR

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS - NORTHERN VENUE - COOPERS ALEHOUSE, GEPPS CROSS

STAFF IN MAINSTREAM KINDERGARTEN, PRE-SCHOOL, JUNIOR PRIMARY, PRIMARY, SCHOOLS, AND SPECIAL EDUCATION ALL AGES

PRESENTED BY KYMBERLY LOUISE, BEHAVIOURAL SCIENTIST

This workshop is suitable for staff in mainstream early years and primary school, and special education all ages across the three education sectors in South Australia. This workshop is best suited for staff teams to participate, as strategies discussed can involve hands-on 1-1 interaction, or site-wide change to reduce the instances of challenging functional behaviour. 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
  • Awareness of tools and processes for investigating the potential causes of student distress that lead to functional behaviour
  • Development of strategies for responding to, and more importantly preventing, challenging behaviours that impede learning
