We are delighted to announce that Ollie Lovell is joining the A Learner’s Toolkit project as a Critical Friend. He is an emerging voice at the intersection of cognitive science and education. Ollie’s work in the areas of Cognitive Load Theory and Self-Regulated Learning is significant. Collectively, his research and writing already have made a tremendous impact on both the design and implementation of the student training continuum and the critical elements in new teacher professional learning resources.

Ollie is currently undertaking his PhD in self-regulated learning through the University of Freiburg, Germany, under supervisors Alexander Renkl and John Dunlosky, and project partner Tino Endres.

A Learner’s Toolkit is the first open-access program in Australia – and one of only a few in the world – that helps secondary students become more efficient in learning and studying to achieve success throughout their secondary schooling and beyond.
Developed by the Churchie Research Centre (CRC) in partnership with three leading universities, A Learner’s Toolkit applies the best science of learning to help secondary schools and their students master study at a pivotal time in their lives.
In the spirit of reconciliation, the A Learner’s Toolkit team acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
