Making Sense of Metacognition

Alex will explore the evidence and practice that attends the new Education Endowment Foundation guidance report on ‘Metacognition and Self-regulation’. He tackles some of the myths about metacognition and explores how teachers can mobilise metacognition in their classrooms and schools.


Alex works at the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) supporting the national network of research schools. He is the co-author of the EEF Metacognition and Self-regulation guidance report, as well as books for teachers, such as ‘Den trygga läraren’ and ‘Closing the Vocabulary Gap’.
