    Exploring the Evidence

    The facilitators were well informed and delivered the content to staff with a range of experiences without being patronising or leaving anyone behind…(through) interesting, relevant questions and challenges.

    Who is the programme for?

    This programme is aimed at all school staff interested in finding out more about research, including both support staff, teachers and leaders.

    What is involved?

    This series of twilights explores recent research into what works to support pupils’ learning and development, both in the classroom and beyond. In each session, a recent piece of research will be explored and its implications for classroom practice explored with participating teachers.

    All participating teachers will receive a ‘take-away’ pack of materials and resources from each session, so that they can use the very same session in their own school with groups of colleagues.

    Next session

    What is Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) and what consideration should we make for this in classroom practice? This session explores the evidence from CLT and the practical advice its proponents offer class-teachers. The session also offers a health warning about reading the research with care, asking what should we and shouldn’t we take from CLT and why?

    Session details

    The programme is led by members of the alliance Research Working Group.
