Learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, ADHD, autism are a significant part of the education landscape. This Zoom workshop and a following 2 day face-to-face workshop aim to delve beyond observable behaviour and examine the cognitive processes involved in these differences that impact learning and create barriers for students. You will walk away with new understandings and perspectives that will enable you to provide evidence-based accommodations, devise remediation plans, and advocate for your students. Notable areas that will be covered are: science of learning, cognitive load theory, and motivation theory.
Approximately 2 weeks prior to the workshop, you will be sent a video introduction which will ask you to submit a question that is specific to your needs and context. This way Elena can tailor the workshop so that you will get the most out of it.
This workshop is an introduction to a 2 day face-to-face workshop which will be held the 7 & 8 September, 2024.
