CPD pack: Retrieval practice

1 min read

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 article, ‘Optimising learning using retrieval practice’, written by Dr Megan Sumeracki, Cognitive Psychology Professor at Rhode Island College and Dr Yana Weinstein, Assistant Professor at University of Massachusetts and co-founder of Learning Scientists.

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.
