Using Metacognition to Enhance Learning

Course Details

The benefits of metacognition are being talked about widely. It is more than 'learning about learning' or 'thinking about thinking' and there are a range of pupil benefits from teaching staff using metacognitive strategies. This course examines what metacognition actually is, how it can be used to develop pupil independence and taking control of their learning, as well as examining motivation in pupils. Through a variety of practical activities, attendees will learn a range of strategies and questioning techniques that can be used in their classroom.
