Get ready to bust common misconceptions about how learning works!

Studies have shown mindsets and metacognition, or “learning how to learn,” has a meaningful impact on student outcomes. How can educators and leaders unlock these strategies to support students to become confident, motivated, and self-regulated learners in school and beyond? 

Join this session with experts Dr. Veronica Yan, Ph.D., and Kyle Niemis, M.Ed. to: 

  • Understand the research behind long-lasting, accelerated learning for students 
  • Discover use-tomorrow teaching strategies to incorporate “desirable difficulty” and other evidence-based learning practices in your schools and classrooms 
  • Gain tools and resources to support engaging and effective implementation
