Teaching College Science, Session 1
How do we help students learn how to learn science?
How do we help our students learn how to learn science? How can we translate the research in cognitive science into effective practices to help students learn to read, write, and problem solve in the discipline?
Faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students are invited to this discussion of the literature and sharing our best practices. We’ll discuss 2-3 short articles each session on effective ways to teach the processes of science given what the research says about how students learn. Participants are asked to read the short on-line articles before each session. Lunch will be provided.
There are two sessions, January 8th and 15th. Please sign up for each session individually.
