Description: Although the context in which teaching and learning takes place varies quite a bit depending on class size, course level, the nature of the discipline, and even the architecture of the room among other things, the science devoted to how humans learn reveals some consistent findings that can inform our teaching and course design. Fifty years of research in neuroscience, cognitive science, and education all converge on several key factors that have been found to contribute to both deeper and more durable learning. The purpose of this session is to distill these findings into manageable pieces and to explore practical applications of these findings in our teaching and course / lesson design.
