Are you looking for better teacher CPD?

Cognitive Load Theory CPD

Cognitive Load Theory CPD workshops are available for inset days/in school CPD.

About the workshop

It has been described as one of the most important psychological theories that teachers should know, but what actually is Cognitive Load Theory? This concept states that, if students are presented with too many new elements at the same time, their brain won’t be able to cope and will fail to store the information. This is why knowledge of Cognitive Load Theory – and how to avoid cognitive overload in the classroom – can help any teacher make learning more efficient for their students.

Our Cognitive Load Theory workshops explain the research on the subject in a simple to understand yet easy to use way. Your staff will leave with a range of evidence informed strategies that can help their students learn more efficiently and effectively in their lessons.

THIS WORKSHOP WILL HELP TEACHERS IMPROVE STUDENTS’:
  • Long-term memory
  • Learning efficiency
  • Revision strategies
  • Rate of learning
WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY
  • An overview of Cognitive Load Theory and the different types of cognitive load
  • Practical strategies to help reduce cognitive overload in your lessons
  • Review and discuss the latest memory and learning research
