Today’s faculty tend to steer clear of memory and memorization in their classrooms, preferring to focus on higher-level thinking skills and practical application of knowledge. However, do these goals have to be mutually exclusive?
New research suggests that teachers can have it both ways, using research-based techniques to strengthen both what students know and their ability to use that knowledge. In this interactive plenary talk, cognitive psychologist Michelle Miller will invite faculty to look at memory in a new light, offering tools and techniques that help students build a solid base of knowledge efficiently, quickly, and with a side order of fun.
So join us on November 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and learn how to assist students in accessing their full potential.
