Maximising Memory and the Science of Learning

New GCSEs and A Levels have significantly more content, have an increased challenge and are as high stakes as ever. Drawing on the latest research into memory and the science of learning, this course is designed to equip school leaders and teachers with the evidence based tools to tackle exams.

Over the course of three days, delegates will explore the best available evidence and reflect on its application in their own context. They will examine how best to design lessons, curricula and revision so that students remember.

Delegates will cover the following:

Day One – Monday 19th March: The Science of Learning

Day Two – Friday 27th April: Encoding, Consolidation and Retrieval – making things stick

Day Three – Tuesday 26th June: Principles to support effective study and revision

This course will be particularly useful for current and aspiring subject leaders, but the principles will apply for all teachers and school leaders. The focus will be on terminal examinations: GCSE and A Level.

The course costs £295 for all three days and will be held at Dixons Trinity Academy. The course price includes a follow up from the Research School on completion of the course, although this will take a different form depending on delegate preference. Schools can send an additional delegate for no additional cost.

Bradford Research School and Dixons Academies are pleased to be working with Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance in the delivery of this programme.
