19CN02SPACE LEARNING IN ACTION

Facilitator: Kieran McTigue

Venue: Cavan Crystal Hotel,Dublin Road, Cavan.  

DATE: Tuesday 12th February 2019   (Evening):07.00pm – 09.00pm

The workshop will introduce Spaced Learning to teachers and educators. Spaced Lerning is an approach to learning that is based on recent neuroscientific research which aids memorisation of information in a more effective manner. Research has found that approaches such as Spaced Learning aid in improved memory recall and retrieval, making it an excellent methodology for use in the classroom. Owing to the more effective use of time in the classroom, more varied approaches and methodologies could be utilised, namely, walking debates, hot seat, project work, creativity/artwork, etc.The approach can be used across a range of subjects and offers an effective, fun and interactive approach to learning.  In particular, it has proven effective in expanding the educational experience of learners by offering them an opportunity to explore more novel and interesting ways of learning. Included in this are students who may hitherto have been disengaged in learning but also those students who wish be challenged more in their learning.  

Early this year, Kieran completed the Professional Diploma in Entrepreneurial Education in UCD. The course – run through the university’s Innovation Academy – is designed for educators who want to explore new ways to teach and facilitate learning. Over the course of the Diploma, participants completed and submitted a research project  in part fulfilment of the requirement for the Diploma. For his research project, he chose to focus on a relatively recent yet innovative area in education, namely, Spaced Learning – using neuroscience in the classroom. Due to the very positive feedback received and interest generated, the Innovation Academy suggested he contact the various education centres to give a presentation on this particular approach to interested teachers.
