Neil Mercer is Professor Emeritus of Education at the University of Cambridge, where he is also the Director of the Oracy Cambridge Centre and a well-known author. He has worked extensively and internationally with teachers, researchers and educational policy makers on improving talk for learning in schools.

You will learn:

  • What oracy is and what are the practical implications of research?
  • Practical strategies to stimulate and sustain talk for learning, and consider the implications for the classroom.
  • How to assess oracy.

Neil will explain what is known about the importance of children’s spoken language experience for the development of their reasoning, academic attainment and life chances in general. He will relate this to how teachers can use talk most effectively to help children learn and how their oral skills are developed through activities in which they can put language to use.
