The Science of Learning: What should teachers know, and why?

February 08, 2021

This podcast episode is a Science of Learning feast for anyone mildly obsessed with teaching and learning!

EBE’s Director of Education, Dr Stuart Kime, talks to Dr Niki Kaiser and Dr Efrat Furst about the approach the three of them took to the design our Science of Learning Programme. However, this is far more than a conversation about designing teacher CPD. Our teaching trio of Drs discuss:

The learning process and the value of teachers knowing about it;
The key characteristics of how people learn;
Their experiences as teachers encountering new information about how we learn and incorporating it into their practice;
Moving from novice to expertise;
Making learning meaningful (potatoes and carrots!).
