What does recent research in cognitive science suggest about strategies you might implement to improve student learning in your course? This workshop will introduce participants to research on learning and memory and to specific suggestions for applying this research in the humanities, arts, and social sciences.
Participants will discuss the following:
Strategies for integrating interactive activities that can increase long-term retention of material
Benefits of teaching methods that combine visual and verbal information
Approaches to adjusting teaching to maximize memory and attention
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenters: Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center and Bryn Lutes, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
This workshop is part of the Pedagogies in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate.
Participation in this workshop series partially satisfies the advanced-level training requirement for the Teaching Citation program and the Preparation in Pedagogy (PiP) program.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by attendance at a specified number of introductory-level TA-Training workshops.
