Intro to CogSci and SLOP: Guest posts for OUP

CogSciSci editors and contributors Dom Shibli and Adam Robbins have recently written articles for Oxford University Press about applying cognitive science to science education in advance of the release of a new range of cognitive science-informed revision guides.

Dom’s article introduces some key ideas behind CogSciSci and makes a brief foray into discussing how we avoid cognitive science becoming a lethal mutation and just another “fad.”

Adam’s article looks at how SLOP isn’t just an extended worksheet. It’s “the best CPD” he’s ever had and is a one-stop-shop for sequencing, worked examples, guided practice and independent practice. In short: SLOP booklets are the ultimate tool for the evidence-informed science teacher.

The OUP’s science education branch have been extremely supportive of CogSciSci and you can learn more about their revision project here.
