Have you had students struggle to remember what was taught
the previous year, semester, or even the last month?
Science has identified reasons for these problems. Working with cognitive scientists in her classroom for fifteen years, Bain developed teaching strategies based on their science. Best of all, these strategies don’t add to a teacher’s workload, but will streamline what you are already doing. In her engaging and interactive Powerful Teaching workshops, Bain unlocks the research and shares her evidence-based strategies.
In Powerful Teaching Workshops, educators will learn:
How to apply the teaching strategies of Retrieval, Spacing, Interleaving and Feedback-driven Metacognition
How cognitive load, working memory, and desirable difficulties play a role in learning
How simple changes in their classrooms will increase retention of content
How to open the toolbox Bain provides, and use new strategies the day after after the workshop
Educators meet regularly with Patrice Bain for help and ideas in implementing strategies from the book, with hints from her own experience and stories
