A very valuable day. I really benefitted from Chris using the same techniques/strategies himself that he was advocating. Lots to think about and share with colleagues. Thank you :)
Chris will guide you through some of the most important findings from Cognitive Scientists and how you can apply their findings to make learning stick.
THIS IS A RESEARCH-BASED COURSE WHERE CHRIS WILL PRESENT YOU WITH EVIDENCE GATHERED BY COGNITIVE SCIENTISTS AND VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT RESEARCHERS OVER MANY YEARS.
- 5 Cognitive principles fully explained
- Discover how students learn
- Explore practical ways to implement the research
Why this course is relevant or important:
Some of the research findings will challenge some of the most entrenched ideas around teaching and learning strategies and how we think about progress. This course covers the theory and practice of effective learning.
Advance your understanding of:
Amongst the practical strategies explained, Chris will help you to understand:
• cognitive load theory
• the benefits of forgetting
• storage and retrieval strength
• the testing effect
• the problems with blocking
• retrieval practise
• lots of practical strategies to make learning stick with sustained mastery of curriculum content.
• 76 practical strategies to implement the principles.

Excellent course - so interesting and enjoyable but challenging so much that we have always been encouraged to do!
This was a very informative course. Lots of ideas and points to consider. Thank you.
Chris delivered ‘Making it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning’ to the Methodist Academies Schools Trust, Birmingham:
Chris has a of wealth of valuable knowledge and it was a pleasure to take part in his training.
Valuable take away opportunities and ideas to enhance learning.
I would highly recommend this training and other training by Chris to others.
The knowledge shared was and is very beneficial and purposeful.
I now understand the importance of embedding the learning rather than focusing on the task type. Memory is the residue of thought.
Reinforcing that we need to slow down to ensure basic ‘skills’ are secure.
Interleaved practise - interesting to find out that it’s not good to block as children learn more by doing it over a time.
Loved the puzzles.
Chris guided us through all the content with a great pace, excellent knowledge and the right balance between theory and practice.
The materials and delivery of them were excellent.
I found it really informative and I love the idea of practical takeaways.
It was very useful to understand why children forget and some strategies to help with this.
Latest research on how memory works.
Love the workbook – great to use for future to recap.
Fabulous – you made a space for us at the last moment. Thank you!
Chris is always thought provoking and provides really well thought out materials and practical examples.
Procedural, episodic, semantic planning with this in mind will be useful.
Great! Thank you!
Like the short/sharp tips that can change practice within the classroom.
Explanation of long term/working memory and it’s application in the learner process was useful.
Very informative - would love to attend more courses.
