Speaker 1 Dawn Cox

This session will focus on how research on memory and learning can inform classroom practice. Dawn will consider some of the cognitive science research on memory and suggest what this means for students' learning. She will share some tried and tested strategies for use in the classroom and beyond. She will also look at a whole school approach to embed some of these principles so that all staff and students are aware of and can utilise these effective strategies independently.

Speaker 2 Tim Mullis

This session will provide a case study of how cognitive science principles have been applied to the implementation of the Inspiration Trust science curriculum. It will include detail of pitfalls as well as successes and lots of examples of day to day implementation. The ability to curate memory has been a historical divider between advantaged and disadvantaged pupils, Tim will discuss the capacity of cognitive science in conjunction with a knowledge-rich curriculum to close the disadvantage gap.
