Metacognition: Practical Strategies CPD

Metacognition is a low-cost, evidence-based approach that helps improve the performance of students, particularly those that are low-achieving. Metacognition and self-regulation strategies have been found to add up to 7 months’ additional learning for students. Our CPD workshops will provide your staff with practical tips and strategies to make this a reality.

METACOGNITION: PRACTICAL STRATEGIES CPD OVERVIEW

Metacognition is often defined as “thinking about thinking”, or “learning to learn” – it is the ability to reflect and critically analyse what you think and choose helpful thought processes. It has been highlighted by The Education Endowment Foundation as one of the most cost-effective ways to help students improve their learning.

Our “Metacognition: Practical Strategies” teacher CPD workshop will help your staff learn more about what metacognition is, how to use it in the classroom and, above all, how to help students develop independent learning skills and strategies.
