The role of Theory of Mind and emotion understanding in parent-child tutoring interactions.

The final seminar in the series will examine the potential contribution of Theory of Mind (ToM) to the effectiveness of scaffolding interactions. The seminar will examine the role of ToM and emotion understanding, in both parent and child, in predicting parents’ efficacy in providing tutorial support and the effectiveness of that support for children’s learning.

This seminar will be led by an opening address from Professor Claire Hughes, (University of Cambridge) who is a leading expert in children’s theory of mind and parent-child interaction.

This seminar will be held in Canterbury on 10th July 2015. Travel and Directions can be found on our Information page.
