Memory and Metacognition
Help your students to optimise their memory, develop their Metacognition and tackle challenges more effectively.
In today’s fast-paced world, the ability to think critically and adapt to new situations is more important than ever – making Metacognition a crucial skill for students to develop. By identifying their current thought processes and selecting helpful strategies, they can tackle tasks and challenges more effectively, in turn boosting their performance.
In this workshop, your students will gain an understanding of how their memory works so they can use it better. Through group discussions, interactive experiments and expert guidance, they’ll learn more effective study skills and discover the importance of using metacognitive strategies, questions and feedback.
As a result, your students will feel empowered to monitor and purposely direct their learning, setting them on the path to become more engaged, self-aware, independent learners.

- Metacognitive skills
