Do you ever feel like you are dragging your students through the learning process? Are you frustrated by passive learners in your classroom. Do you feel like you’re the one doing all the heavy lifting of learning in the classroom, and students aren’t holding up their end of learning? Do you worry that your students should be doing better?
All of that is understandable. You’re a skilful teacher, and you do a great job. The if you’re feeling like this then the problem could be that your students aren’t skilful learners!
Learnership is the skill of learning. It represents how students engage in the learning process. Like all skills it is developed over time through the deliberate use of practice and dedicated strategies. It results in the learning gaining more from every learning opportunity. Learnership describes how well a learner engages with 5 key elements of learning: Challenge. Habits of Mind. Mistakes. Feedback, and Effort. Based on a learners relationship with these elements, we identify six different types of learners.
In this flagship full day workshop, James Anderson will cover the key elements to understanding and developing Learnership in your students. You’ll learn how to help your students become comfortable with this discomfort of challenge, how to develop their Habits of Mind, understand and use the six different types of mistakes effectively, and to tailor their feedback. You’ll be introduced to the Learnership Diagnostic Tool that allows you to accurately measure how skilfully your students engage with learning, and design next steps to improve that!

12.5% increase in students setting challenging goals
30% increase in perseverance
8.5% increase in teacher expectation of high performance
And are now finalists in the Australian Education Awards for their work!
