Training programme – Improving memory

10:00–15:00 on 6 February 2019

Course overview

Over recent years, schools and teachers have become increasingly interested in how students learn and the role of memory in this process. In this course, we will draw on evidence from cognitive science to explore how to design lessons, units of work and policies that encourage knowledge retention and put students on the path to success. This will be relevant and useful for primary and secondary colleagues.

  • Which teaching methods have been shown to improve memory recall?
  • How can better course and curriculum planning improve the depth and scope of student knowledge?
  • What are the most effective revision strategies to teach our students?
  • How can we best prepare students for content-rich exams?
