CTE Workshop: How Students Learn: Strategies for Teaching from the Psychology of Learning 12:05 p.m. - 1:25 p.m.

Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Feb 28, 2011
Abundant research demonstrates that learning takes place when the student's mind actively engages in the material. The major problem is determining how to increase that activity. Within the discipline of human memory, learning, and cognition exists a vast body of literature dealing specifically with this issue. Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the basic concepts in human learning, how to present information so that students most effectively encode it into long-term memory, and how to help students know when they know. Please register online at, by email, or phone 803-777-8322. Please register by February 22, 2011 if you desire lunch. More information
