Our CPD packs are designed to support members in further exploring the themes raised in each Impact journal. CPD packs provide guidance and resources to help facilitate staff CPD based on key articles from each issue. This pack is related to the following two articles:
- Effective learning: Beyond the traditional/progressive Punch and Judy show written by Guy Claxton, Visiting Professor of Education, King’s College, London
- Making sense of metacognition written by Alex Quigley, English Teacher and Director of Learning and Research, Huntington Secondary School and Eleanor Stringer, Education Endowment Foundation
The packs are designed to be flexible so they can be used and adapted to deliver a one off session or a longer series of CPD opportunities. The facilitator notes contain suggestions for how to shorten or extend activities depending on whether you wish to provide a brief snapshot of the research or explore the concepts over a longer time period. We recognise that preparing and resourcing high quality CPD in schools and colleges is both time consuming and expensive, and we hope that these CPD packs will help reduce teachers’ and school leaders’ workload as well as providing a supportive framework enabling all school members to facilitate CPD confidently.
The CPD pack related to these articles enables teachers to consider what effective learning looks like in their context and what they can do to enable this in their classroom. There’ll be an opportunity, in particular, to reflect on knowledge, skills, mindset, and the role of metacognition in developing effective learners.
This pack contains the following –
