19 Feb David Didau Teacher Training Workshop
As part of the St. Paul’s Professional Development Programme, we will be hosting a one-day teacher training workshop with David Didau.
David taught English for 15 years in a variety of schools in the UK and overseas. He started blogging about his experiences of teaching in 2011. That blog, The Learning Spy, is now widely recognised as one of the most influential education blogs in the UK. Didau currently works as a freelance writer, speaker and trainer, and is employed by Swindon Academy as an internal consultant on curriculum design, teaching and literacy.
David´s one-day training session here will focus on the following areas:
Cognitive Psychology: how the Working Memory Model helps teachers understand how students learn; cognitive load theory and how we can support learning by manipulating task demand and available resources; desirable difficulties and the links between struggle and success
Applying Research: an overview of popular research findings; how to think critically about research, questions to ask about new policies; how to evaluate impact; a case study of research into ability setting
Behaviour: the psychology of motivation, social norms, group behaviour and rewards & sanctions
We are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of places at this unique event designed for school leaders, coordinators, heads of department and teachers.
We hope you can join us!
