The Science of Learning for Teachers - email course
How does "free teacher CPD" sound?
There is so much research out there that could help you improve your students’ learning – but not enough time to read it all, especially with a busy teacher’s schedule.
While we haven’t found a way to magically give you more time for research-reading, we’ve done even better: we have condensed everything you need to know as a teacher into a seven-part email course.
Learn practical, evidence-based strategies to use in your classroom, without having to cut down on lesson planning or much-needed rest. Simply fill out the form on the right to receive an email every week – and while the emails will be short enough to be worth your time, they will be full of resources for you to dig deeper if you would like.
