The Patterns of Attention
8 July | 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm
When we direct our attention (or directed by others) to something several cognitive processes quickly occur. We might hold a gaze; zoom in and discern details; zoom out to recognise relationships; connect and perceive properties and start to reason on these properties. The astonishing reality is that we cycle through these multiple times every second. Inspired by work by John Mason, in this session I will explore how these patterns of attention are important and how they can be utilised within teaching to maximise encoding. There will collaboration and table talk so please come prepared to share your experiences.
