Event description

Description

According to the Education Endowment Foundation, 'metacognition and self-regulation' (also known as ‘Learning to Learn’) provide 'high impact for very low cost, based on extensive evidence' (EEF, 2019). But what does it look like in the classroom? What comes first, metacognition or self-regulation? And what’s the difference between the two?

Over the last ten years, Dr James Mannion and Kate McAllister have developed a new approach to Learning to Learn known as the Learning Skills curriculum. An 8-year evaluation carried out at the University of Cambridge found that Learning Skills led to significant gains in subject learning across the curriculum, with accelerated gains among students from disadvantaged backgrounds (Mannion, McAllister and Mercer, 2018). The Learning Skills approach is now being successfully applied across a range of contexts: from early years to universities; from schools in deprived areas to elite international colleges; from workplaces to refugee camps.

The Learning Skills approach is rooted in three key concepts: metacognition, self-regulation and oracy. At this one-day event for teachers and school leaders, you will learn a range of practical strategies for developing metacognition, self-regulation and oracy in the classroom, including:

  • A range of strategies, habits and routines for promoting metacognition
  • How to teach students to self-regulate their emotions as well as their learning behaviours
  • How to promote metacognitive talk among students and teachers alike

Drawing on insights from ‘implementation science’, you will leave this practical workshop with a detailed, personalised action plan for how to put these ideas into action in a way that makes sense to you and your pupils: which strategies you will use, who you will use them with, and how you will know if they have been successful.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to take a deep dive into metacognition, self-regulation and oracy before the summer – essential practices for creating confident, effective, independent learners. For more information on the research that underpins our work, visit rethinking-ed.org/research.
