Session title

Why are students so bad at learning?

10.35 - 11.35pm

Workshop Overview

  • Why is it so difficult to get our students to retain the information we give them?

  • Why is it such a challenge to figure out exactly what our students do and don't know?

  • And why is it that they can spend hour after hour studying, only to struggle a short while afterwards?

Building on his Strengthening the Student Toolbox 'In Action' book, Amarbeer will explore how understanding the relationship between learning and performance can provide answers to these questions. We’ll look at common traps, what we can do to avoid them, and how we can use all of that to develop our practice.
