The aim of our CPD packs is to support members in further exploring the themes raised in an issue of our journal, Impact. 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 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, Senior Programme Manager, 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 materials below allow teachers to consider what effective learning looks like in their context and what they can do to enable it 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:
- Presentation slides
- Facilitator guidance
- A copy of the Claxton article
- A copy of the Quigley and Stringer article
