SoL: Developing Sophisticated Learners
Developing Sophisticated Learners
In partnership with the world’s leading experts, COGx bridges the gap between research from learning sciences and classroom application. Our online professional development for educators provide compelling research and insightful application to bolster teaching efficacy and improve your students’ ability to learn.
Academic Research on Student Learning
"Learning is a scientific process, and for students to learn optimally they must be taught. This is true regardless of cognitive abilities and disposition towards learning."
"Students often use ineffective techniques such as highlighting and re-reading, with limited success. Such strategies are rooted in the misconception that memory behaves like a tape recorder."
We Practice What We Teach
COGx is the finest example I’ve encountered of cutting edge research applied to educational methodology. All educators should be required to learn effective strategies to develop the foundational cognitive skills students need to engage in the critical thinking and creative problem solving that 21st century education demands.
“The COGx program on the science of learning allowed me to understand and connect the theory to the actions I needed to take to improve my teaching. COGx expertly combines theoretical understanding with application in a balanced way unlike online courses that are detached from the practice of teaching or advice that is detached from the science and theory. I could not have improved my teaching without both ingredients. I highly recommend this to anyone committed to their students' success.”
“The information and way in which it is taught is very relevant to me and my students. I particularly liked the way the program used the strategies such as spacing and interleaving allowing me to see the strategies at work and learn by doing.”
