Implications of memory research for teaching, Inspiration Trust Curriculum Centre, Wednesday, 14. November 2018

About the course
How can we help students understand? When they do, how can we stop them forgetting what they've learned? From heads on desk to invisible memories, this session will explore the foundations of how we learn, providing answers to these two questions. We will look at the root cause of all pupil misconceptions, the nature of ‘understanding', and then what we can do to ensure all pupils understand, and then remember for the rest of their lives. 
Who should attend?
This course is for all teachers in primary or secondary who wish to understand the implications of the research into memory for their own practice.
