Develop skilled thinkers who enjoy solving difficult problems
This course explores practical ways to increase students, of all ages, abilities in problem-solving pedagogies. We look at how we can turn typical classroom activities into engaging tasks where learners do the hard cognitive work.
The emphasis of the workshop will be on practical applications that all teachers can use in the classroom. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and staff will be encouraged to think about how the strategies can be combined to produce really effective and thought provoking lessons.
Strategies will include:
- Reasoning – critical thinking and using information effectively
- Philosophical Enquiry – thinking in groups
- Meta-Cognition – knowing how to move forward
- Computational Thinking – using the cognitive process in other subjects
Course tutor: John Medlicott
