Applying Cognitive Science to Improve Student Learning in STEM: Interleaving and Maximizing Working Memory Capacity
Wednesday, March 8th, 2017
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Seigle 109, Danforth Campus
The manner and order in which content is presented in the classroom significantly impacts student learning. In this workshop, using results from cognitive-science research, participants will discuss the strategy of interleaving and principles for integrating visual information to maximize working memory for improving student learning.
This is a foundational workshop for the WU-CIRTL program.
Presenter: Gina Frey, Ph.D., Executive Director
This workshop is open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM, and is part of the STEM Pedagogies series. Registration for this workshop will open on February 22.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend introductory-level Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by participation in TA-Training workshops.
