Instructors around the country are adopting tested teaching methods in their classroom influenced by cognitive science. By more closely matching teaching methods with what is known about how humans learn, instructors can demonstrate improved learning by their students.
These methods are now becoming more common, particularly in the STEM community. This talk will describe these principles and how they can be used in nearly any classroom.
Attendees will learn and practice concepts such as Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT), team-based learning and James Lang’s Small Teaching.
Bill Goffe is a lecturer at Penn State, an associate editor for The Journal of Economic Education, editor of American Economic Association Resources for Economists, and an expert in cognitive load and running experiments to test pedagogical techniques.
