Developing meta-cognitive strategies to support independence in learning

About this module:

In this module, we will identify the knowledge skills and behaviours of pupils who are able to use metacognitive strategies and self-regulation to enhance their independent learning in order to explore activities to develop independent learning in the classroom. We’ll consider how to maximise motivation, connecting classroom practice to the research and theory of metacognition and self-regulation giving the participants practical ideas to explore in their classrooms.

This module is appropriate for classroom practitioners in all phases and levels of experience.
