The Science of Learning Programme

There are four modules, each broken down into units and lessons.

  • Module One

    Explore the scientific evidence regarding the process of learning through reading: the essential cognitive systems, their functions and limitations, and the factors that affect them.

  • Module Two

    Understand the benefits and limitations of specific teaching strategies and find out how each strategy can play its part in helping a student move from novice to advanced states.

  • Module Three

    Apply concepts and strategies from the Science of Learning to curriculum planning in your subject or phase. Learn how to adjust examples and models to fit your context and your curriculum aims, and map learning activities to the stages of the cognitive development process.

  • Module Four

    Develop an implementation plan to help your colleagues apply strategies from the Science of Learning. Prioritise issues and plan how to address them with clearly-defined roles, responsibilities and activities for all involved in students’ learning.

How will you benefit from the Science of Learning Programme?

The programme addresses key challenges faced by middle and senior leaders. We have harnessed the evidence on learning to enable you to:

  • connect lesson content and activities with how students learn, in order to improve effectiveness;
  • create the best possible learning experience for a student;
  • translate research on the science of learning into teaching and learning strategies; and
  • embed the key principles of learning science into curriculum design.
