Leaders in Education Conference

16 November 2022 | 14:20 - 14:40 | English | Students understanding their own learning journey

If we want our students to perform highly, we need them to understand themselves and their learning. This talk looks at how the High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy and framework, is used in HPL accredited schools to give students a language by which they can talk about their learning. The talk explores the language used, why this is important and how it enables students to become intellectually confident. Using case studies of individual students and their teachers will form an integral part of the presentation. HPL was developed by Professor Eyre and based on over 40 years of research into how the most successful learners think and learn, HPL helps schools develop a positive culture where students are confident and engaged in their learning, staff are enjoying their teaching and where existing teaching and learning approaches are strengthened so that ensure that far more students reach high performance.
