Primary Cognitive Science

A modular programme for Primary practitioners, brought to you by Staffordshire Research School & Gateway Alliance.

Applied Cognitive Science: Evidence into Practice

Through this ONLINE programme, based on robust research & evidence, participants will explore…

  • What does the research say?
  • What are the implications for my planning?
  • Examples, case studies & avoidances
  • A chance for reflection – What do I need to do more of & less of to apply these principles of research?
  • So how do I do strategically put this evidence to work to give it the best chance of success?
