The New Science of Learning: Teaching That Promotes Student Success

There is a proliferation of misinformation pertaining to how students learn and how best to teach them. Moreover, students often do not understand their learning processes and typically rely on implicit assumptions or trial-and-error to memorize new material. The good news is that research provides clear evidence of what works best in the classroom with respect to human motivation and deep learning. This webinar provides you with evidence about how students learn, shares methods that can be used to get students more involved with course content, and demonstrates applications of pedagogical research that can be used in almost any class.
