Metacognition & Self-Regulated Learning – 3 Day Primary & Secondary Programme

09:00 on 12 February 2019–15:30 on 9 April 2019

This programme is suitable for Heads of Department / Key Stage, Senior Leaders from Primary, Secondary and Special Schools, Middle Leaders and Classroom Teachers.

Metacognition and self-regulated learning is one of the most accessed strands of the EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit and on average has an impact of 7 months additional progress.  But the majority of practitioners are not yet clear exactly how this can be effectively applied in their classrooms to improve student outcomes.

At every phase, from Early Years through to Post-16, new specifications mean that our students are facing more challenging curriculums with increased content.  This course will dig deeper into the ‘what’, the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of metacognition.  Based upon the Guidance Report and cutting-edge evidence, this course will enable you to make confident decisions that will help your pupils to become aware of their strengths and limitations and to select the appropriate strategies when undertaking a task.

Delegates need to fully commit to the programme including attendance at all face-to-face days, completion of gap tasks and engagement in programme evaluation.

Delegates will:
• Develop an understanding of metacognition & self-regulated learning
• Be provided with the tools and processes for self-review
• Be provided with guidance on effective implementation
• Be offered practical resources and tools to use in school
• Be given the skills and knowledge to be able to offer in-school training that is evidence based

Day 1: Exploring, reflecting & building knowledge: What metacognition is and is not
Will focus on accurately defining metacognition, the evidence showing its importance in the classroom and deepen our understanding of the ‘metacognitive process’.

Day 2: Using metacognition to solve our schools biggest problem
Will focus on how we can help our students to become self-regulated learners, how to explicitly teach metacognitive strategies and how memory and metacognition are related.

Day 3: Making every child an independent learner
Will focus on how we can explicitly teach pupils how to organise and effectively manage their learning independently. There will also be time and support for action planning, how to implement change and make a difference in your school.
