Renewed focus from Ofsted and the shift to more linear, external examination has made it more important than ever for learners to ‘remember in the long term the content they have been taught’ (draft Ofsted Framework for September 2019). This course explores some essential, evidence-based techniques you can incorporate into your teaching to help make sure that what gets learnt, stays learnt.
Teaching students to remember what they learn
Support your teachers and learners in a key new element of the 2019 Ofsted framework
- When you teach: planning sequences of learning using interleaving and distributed practice to regularly return to topics
- How you teach: using a range of memory tricks, such as ‘dual coding’, to help improve recall
- What you teach: enabling learners to elaborate on their learning, understand key underlying ideas, and link these to other concepts
- After you teach: providing learners a suite of effective study skills to enable them to prepare for future assessments
