MNP Annual Conference: Deep Learning in Education

April 30, 2019 | London

Dig deeper to build higher

In a changing world, rote and procedural learning skills just aren’t enough. Discover the importance of deep learning in education and the underlying conceptual structures that support high achievement.

What to expect

Uncover the hidden structures of learning

Discover why traditional teaching methods only skim the intellectual surface, and how teaching for depth helps children find patterns, learn foundational properties and reveal hidden mathematical structures that build fluency.

Find out why deep learning is essential for lifelong growth

Semantic memorisation only gets pupils so far. Seeing problem solving as a positive, creative process helps children find the pleasure in working things out while making cognitive connections that last much longer than rote memorisation.

Say bye to busy work and start differentiating for depth

Should you differentiate by content? By outcome? Opinions vary, but research shows that teaching for mastery encourages deep thinking and benefits pupils in all subjects. Learn how experimenting within constraints leads to higher levels of understanding.

Hear new perspectives

Learn from leaders in education

Hear from forward-thinking mathematicians, educators and neuroscientists as they explore the ideas and methodologies influencing modern learning.
