Reading Group: "How Learning Works"
Monday, December 5, 2011 (Around 2 years ago)
How do people learn? How can we apply what is known about learning to be more effective educators? Faculty are invited to participate in a discussion of “How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching”, a recently published book by Susan A. Ambrose, Michael W. Bridges, Michele DiPietro, Marsha C. Lovett, and Marie K. Norman. “How Learning Works” presents practical suggestions for improving student learning that are based upon recent research in the fields of education and psychology. The discussion will be facilitated by Kyle Chambers (psychology) each Tuesday at 1:30 pm in Beck Hall, room 213. Books will be provided to the first ten individuals to register. To reserve a place and receive a book, please register with Cathy Blaukat (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, 23 December.
