Learning to Learn training day at Streatham & Clapham High School: Fri Jan 27, 10.30-3.30

by James Mannion

Last month, Kate and I did a talk at the researchED conference entitled ‘Rethinking Learning to Learn as a Complex Intervention: Raising the Bar, Closing the Gap’. Pretty snappy huh? If you’re interested, you can see the talk below – the sound settles down after a minute or so. (The room was packed and so we thought we’d leave the door open to let a bit of air in – next time we should make people sweat in silence!)

At the talk, we collected people’s email addresses and received some really lovely feedback. We have also had quite a bit of interest in the idea of putting on a training day, so we can spend some time pulling apart the Learning Skills approach we’ve developed over the last 6 years, so people can consider whether any of it might be applicable in their schools.

So now the training day has arrived – woohoo! Here’s a link to the Eventbrite page. Early bird tickets are available until the end of November at £75, and it’s £95 thereafter. Lunch will be provided – we’ll email nearer the time to find out dietary requirements etc.

Have an amazing half-term, and we hope to see some of you in the new year.



    1. Oh no! Can’t change the date now unfortunately. OK, here’s a spoiler for BETT: there is lots of ed tech available, and it varies in quality from the sublime to the ridiculous. I hope you now feel able to come to our event =)

  1. Unfortunately, I will be helping Intel on their stand with their Maker initiative. Will there be a repeat performance? i did watch the whole film from the last one you did with Kate but it is no the same as being there.

    1. That’s a shame. Depending on how this one goes, if there’s an appetite for more we may do another day later in the year, possibly at the IoE. Or we can arrange a time to chat if you like?
