Building good habits for learner independence and self-regulation is something all teachers strive for. Take this opportunity to explore tried and tested ideas for smoother lessons and learning.

This two-part webinar session will showcase practical classroom approaches to build greater learner autonomy and self-regulation. Adopting routines for harnessing ‘peer power’ can lead to more self-sufficient learners. Techniques to encourage metacognition and devolve responsibility can enhance learner confidence and lead to strategic approaches which may activate and deepen understanding.

Presented by experienced education consultant Carmel Bones this engaging workshop organised by Alban Teaching School Alliance showcases versatile techniques which take cognitive science into account and can be adapted to suit your subject, your students and their starting points.
