Metacognition and Self-Regulated Learning – David Mullen – Parent Session

Parent Session

This session focuses on the importance of metacognition and self-regulation. By helping students to plan, monitor and evaluate their own learning we can help them to learn even more effectively. This session will focus on the key principles of metacognition and self-regulation and why they are effective, why metacognition is so important and how we can teach it.

Session Presenter

David Mullen

David Mullen

David is a Lead Teacher at Parliament Hill School in the London Borough of Camden, a fully comprehensive state school. He has a wealth of expertise in metacognition, leading workshops and briefings for a wide range of audiences. His wider role in leading on learning and teaching across the school has led to marked increase in students achieving the top grades (41% in 2019 and 43% in 2020). In David’s own classes 67% of students achieved these top grades (compared to 24% nationally). He believes metacognition to be the key to this success.
