Learning how to learn: Metacognition & Specific Learning Difficulties

By definition, neurodivergent learners learn differently. However, by the end of primary school, it’s a sad
fact that many learners with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) have learned how they fail, not how they
learn. Research shows that teaching metacognition, or learning and regulating how we learn, is effective
for all learners, and this is especially so for learners with SpLD. In this course, we will consider:

  • what metacognition means in practice
  • consider areas of metacognition that are impacted by SpLDs
  • consider ways to intentionally support metacognition and self-regulation

Participants will come away with some resources, ideas and strategies to empower learners with better understanding and independence in negotiating their own learning.

**This webinar will be recorded and available for two weeks after the event**

Date: Tuesday 4th June 2024

Time: 7:30 pm – 9: 00 pm AEST (Melbourne Time)
