This workshop outlines the ATL framework and gives practical suggestions on how to incorporate a focus on developing these skills into regular classroom practice. Ideas discussed will include the structure of the skills framework, vertical and horizontal articulation, cognitive, metacognitive and affective skills, teaching and assessing ATL skills, designing inquiry based learning around ATL skills and developing self-regulated
