The application and misapplication of cognitive science in the classroom
In recent years and increasingly in the past 12 months we have seen a significant and concerted focus on a particular pedagogical approach be promoted, explicitly and implicitly, to our profession. In this session we will explore a recent review of applied Cognitive Science.
You will explore with peers…
- Recent evidence that reviews the application of cognitive science focussed practice in the classroom
- The extent to which applied cognitive science is being promoted across our education system through education training programmes (NPQs, ECF, ITT…)
- The relevance of such approaches to your schools/trusts and if/how this aligns with your whole education view and your CPDL approaches
- WE Intro – James Pope (5 mins)
- Input from Philippa Cordingley (20 mins)
- Facilitated discussion around Key questions (60 mins). Please come prepared to share your view!
- Summary and Close – James Pope (5 mins)
Philippa Cordingley, Chair of Whole Education and Chief Executive of CUREE, is a renowned expert in evaluation, research use and school improvement and leadership through effective Continuing Professional Development and Learning (CPDL). Philippa leads CUREE’s signature research service for evaluating the learning environment for teachers and learners in schools, SKEIN.
Her long career in education has focused on the ‘main thing’ – the success and wellbeing of pupils and students. After cutting her teeth in the education world, Phillipa grew the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education (CUREE) which she founded in the mid-1990s. As Chief Executive, Philippa rapidly established CUREE’s national and international reputation for excellence in research into CPDL; developing innovative approaches to putting research and evidence into the hands of teachers and leaders for them to use to change their practice. This covered systematic technical reviews of education research in England and designing the single biggest programme of RCT’s in education in the world.
She is a member of the recent DfE Expert CPD Group, of the School 21 Trust, of Eton’s Research Advisory Group and of OECD’s Expert Group for Country reviews of teacher preparation and formation.
The Trust Influence Forum
The WE Trust Influence Forum provides you with the space and time to collectively influence each other and the system and become a powerful, positive voice for the change you want to see in education.
WE trust leaders have significant influence over the educational provision and experience of many thousands of young people, their parents and their communities. Furthermore you influence the education profession within your communities and across your networks.
WE believe it is crucial that trusts and their leaders can inform the wider conversation about the future of education in the country. Too often the wisdom and knowledge of schools and trusts is not heard in the debate.
WE amplify your influential voices. You will lead our network’s future thinking and policy positions. Through regular, virtual and face-to-face group discussions, you will have the chance to discuss these challenges and make representations to the key influential groups in the education system.
You will be a positive, collective voice providing whole education solutions to the current education debates in England.
