The speaker:

Professor Andrew Tolmie is Chair of Psychology and Human Development at the Institute of Education, University of London. He is also Deputy Director of the joint IOE/UCL/Birkbeck Centre for Educational Neuroscience, and was Editor of the British Journal of Educational Psychology from 2007-12. He is a developmental psychologist with longstanding interest in the growth of children’s conceptual representations and behavioural skills, and the relationships between these, particularly in the primary school age range. Most of his work has focused on educationally-relevant topics and settings, with a substantial emphasis on primary school science, but also on the acquisition of road-crossing skills among children, and on the use of ICT to support learning. He was recently a member of a Royal Society working group reporting on science and mathematics education 5-14, inputting to this in particular on the role of teacher-learner interaction and peer collaboration in effecting representational growth.
