Witra Publishing Group is pleased to present a series of four lectures on 3 May, 2022, at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Stockholm. Each lecture will be 45 minutes long. Read on for details about the lectures on offer.
Empowering Scientific Capital (Oxford University Press)
In this session, Karen Collins will look at why deliberate consideration of the development of science capital is important to everyone, especially those in leadership roles. She will explore the following dimensions of science capital in particular: scientific literacy, science related attitudes and values, the transferability of science and science media consumption.
Metacognition and Mindset (Cambridge University Press)
How do you prepare your learners for a world that does not yet exist? What skills and knowledge will the adults of the future need? The resources schools choose and what teachers actually do in their classrooms now will have a huge impact on how our young learners shape the future.
At Cambridge we’ve been thinking about this for quite a while. We want all our curricula and qualifications to focus on developing the influencers of the future by equipping them with the skills, knowledge and values to shine in a world that has yet to come.
Please join us to learn how we have developed the key strategies that underpin our approach to learning and teaching in this set of professional development talks and workshops designed to support schools and teachers following the Cambridge International curricula.
How do we learn? How should teachers help students prepare for tasks, tests and exams? Knowing how we learn, and how to develop strategies to maximise thinking, learning and creating a growth mindset can really make a difference to learner engagement and outcomes. This talk offers a fresh perspective and some simple strategies that heads and schools can use to build a truly effective learning environment.
This lecture will explore an important approach to learning and teaching by looking at some of the key ideas from leading researchers and how these can be applied in bilingual, private and Cambridge schools. This lecture is packed full of tips and strategies heads and teachers can apply to their classroom practice and share with colleagues, knowing that their learners will see long lasting benefits.

The evidence behind these dimensions in impacting children’s attitudes to learning
