The Conditions For Learning With Dr Brian Cambourne

Episode Summary

Dr Brian Cambourne joins literacy expert Sharon Callen to talk about the Conditions For Learning.

Episode Notes

How can can teachers develop a set of conditions of learning in the classroom that lead to greater student engagement and improved outcomes?

Many school leaders and teachers are grappling with this, and wondering whether a program could bring the solution, or whether there's a way to construct the learning with students.

To talk about his Conditions For Learning, we welcome back to the podcast ​​Dr. Cambourne, associate professor and Principal Fellow at the University of Wollongong in NSW. 

Brian is one of Australian’s most eminent researchers of literacy and learning. Brian's national and international scholarship has earned him many prestigious awards, including being inducted into the International Reading Association’s Reading Hall of Fame, and the Outstanding Educational Achievement Award by the Australian College of Educators.

Teaching decisions that bring the conditions of learning to life by Debra Couch

Conditions For Learning by Dr Brian Cambourne



"Working with Sharon and Cue has given my staff a new impetus and focus on improving our student's literacy and learning. The "it's not a program" approach has given teachers the skills, structures and confidence to teach reading and writing in a highly explicit way but still allow it be joyful, interesting and motivating. Cue have been fantastic in their flexibility to deliver their support through video, face-to-face sessions, classroom modelling and ongoing 1 to 1 Zoom sessions. Distance has not been an issue."
