Description

Educational Neuromyths
There is significant interest in translating findings from educational psychology and neuroscience into classroom practices. Unfortunately most of these findings are very complex, with few clear indications of how to directly incorporate them to benefit our pedagogy and student learning. This leads to the proliferation of learning-related "neuromyths": plausible-sounding conclusions that aren't fully backed by research. Which educational practices are truly evidence-based and which are "myths"? Join Patricia Reeder (Psychological Science) for a discussion of educational neuromyths, contemplate our responsibility as educators to share truths about the learning process with our students, and brainstorm ideas on how to overcome student biases regarded neuromyths.
Program at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in the Heritage Room.
