The natter:



Introduction: could you tell listeners about your career to this point , how you meet your co-author Pooja and how you decided to work together?

 What is powerful teaching and how and why did you and Pooja come up with this idea ?

Many Listeners will be familiar with the cognitive science behind the strategies suggested (my podcast is broadly evidence based) , what we are maybe less familiar with is how to incorporate these into our teaching , this is why I’m thrilled to speak with you .  Could you outline some suggestions on how to incorporate retrieval practice into lessons? 

Spacing is something that teachers may be incorporating as part of their schemes of learning or long term plans . How do you suggest teachers use spacing ?  I am fascinated by metacognition and have delivered keynotes and courses on the topic , I still find it incredibly difficult to explain what it is and how to incorporate it into lessons . Your book has some fantastic suggestions , could you outline some of these for listeners ?  

 Interleaving is used by many students during revision for example . How do you suggest that teachers best use interleaving as a classroom strategy ?

   Could you outline for listeners where you will be speaking next and where they can get your book?   Will you be coming to the UK ?
