Description Explore the pedagogical factors that most impact learning. With reference to the work of Hattie, Dweck, Deci & Ryan, Ericsson, Csikszentmihalyi, the Harvard Project Zero team, and other notable educational psychologists, we synthesise mindset, intrinsic motivation & metacognition into a model that challenges capped-potential self-conception. Teachers will understand the impact adult beliefs, words and actions have on cultivating the learning disposition of students. Teacher mindsets result in expectations raising or lowering student achievement. Metacognitive teaching has the greatest effect on learning, enabling freedom of the mind enhancing self-efficacy, but how is it taught? Reinvigorate your teaching with a day that revisits the key teaching and learning principles that result in greater student achievement and engagement.
