This presentation starts with the five major messages from Visible Learning, outlines a notion of ‘learning’, then develops seven fundamental principles of learning: learning involves time, energy, deliberate teaching, and effort; the structure and relations of learning; there are major limitations of the mind; the student as social animal; confidence as a multiplier; the need for maintenance and feedback; and identifying the major learning strategies. The new Science of Learning Research Centre is promoted as an opportunity for developing a ‘heat map’ of learning, for assessing, developing and enhancing learning – and for creating a powerful new narrative relating brain research to learning and teaching.
