Are you looking for better teacher CPD?

Metacognition: Plan, Do, Review 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: PLAN, DO, REVIEW 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.

There are many metacognitive strategies you can use with your students, and they can often be divided into three stages: before, during and after a task. Our “Metacognition: Plan, Do, Review” teacher CPD workshop will give your staff practical strategies to help your students think metacognitively at each stage of their learning.

This CPD workshop can be delivered on its own, but we recommend booking it as an add-on to our “Metacognition: Practical Strategies” CPD workshop for a more complete view of metacognition and metacognitive strategies.
