Weekly Digest #137: Lessons Learned From Learning Scientists Teacher Workshops

In the beginning of January, we were on tour in England to provide workshops to teachers. We enjoyed this opportunity tremendously because it gave us not only an opportunity to reach out to teachers and to disseminate knowledge about learning and teaching strategies from Cognitive Psychology, but also allowed us to learn what strategies teachers are currently using in their classrooms. Furthermore, we had engaging Q&A sessions with quite hard questions from the audience. We did our best to provide answers, but in many cases it became apparent that research is still a long way from addressing all important practical questions and that further research is needed to close knowledge gaps. This was an exciting experience. In today’s weekly digest we want to take the opportunity to, first of all, thank all teachers in the audience of our workshops for their input and questions: Thank You! Second of all, we would like to highlight blog posts by teachers who took the time to write a reflection on the lessons they learned from our workshops. Enjoy!
