What We Know (and Think We Know) about Teaching and Learning: The Myths and the Evidence

source: Yale University    2016年10月14日
In the proliferation of information related to learning, it is imperative that we rely on credible sources to inform us as to how best to teach. The more degrees of separation from the source, the more easily information becomes misunderstood or misinterpreted. As a result, in the application of new educational trends, many of us have developed strategies that are inconsistent with sound educational principles. In this presentation by Dr. Todd Zakrajsek, Associate Professor in the School of Medicine & Department of Family Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of The New Science of Learning, the focus will NOT be on merely challenging commonly held positions, but rather identifying a few fundamental learning principles that consistently demonstrate a better way to teach and for students to learn.
