Event Description 

Students and instructors hold assumptions about how we best learn. Many of these assumptions can conflict with learning research data. This can leave instructors and students feeling frustrated when hard work is not leading to great results. How can we identify and address assumptions about learning to best shape our teaching and encourage effective study habits? How can we effectively bring learning principles into our classrooms in an interactive and inclusive way? In this webinar, Meghan Bathgate, a cognitive psychologist researching faculty and student science motivation, will facilitate a discussion about how to bring the psychology of learning into your classroom. Using a series of short interactive examples, participants will walk through how to use real-time data collection to demonstrate psychological principles of learning in college classrooms. These activities can be applied to a variety of classrooms to generate group discussions about how to best study and learn course material. Participants are welcomed to bring their questions and experience to the conversation as we better understand ourselves as learners.
