John will outline the pedagogical ideas that informed the development of the EPQ and review the growing research evidence that shows that it has succeeded in developing the capacity of students to learn independently. He will explain practical classroom strategies for mentoring students working on independent research projects or essays and describe a model for developing independent learning in all curriculum areas.
Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
