Fall Semester 2021 Theme:

How Learning Works: 7 Research Based Principles for Smart Teaching
By: Susan A. Ambrose; Michael W. Bridges; Michele DiPietro

 Make it ‘Work’ for Your Courses!

Foundational content for this T-SIG will be based on the book: How Learning Works: 7 Research Based Principles for Smart Teaching. This book is designed to provide an accessible and practical guide for course instructors to learn about best practices in teaching and learning grounded in research. As we work our way through this book, we will explore how to promote student learning by incorporating how each of the seven principles might apply to courses you teach.


Session 1: Introduction (Bridging Research & Teaching) & Principle 1 (Prior Knowledge)

We will examine how your students’ prior knowledge can help or hinder learning.

Monday 10/4/21

Tuesday 10/5/21


Session 2: Principle 2 (Knowledge Organization) & Principle 3 (Motivation) 

We will examine how novices and experts organize information, and how your students’ goals, values, and expectancies influence learning.

Monday 10/18/21

OR

Tuesday 10/19/21


Session 3: Principle 4 (Mastery) & Principle 5 (Practice & Feedback)

We will discuss how your students’ development of skills (component, integration, and application) contribute toward mastery, fluency, and transfer. We will also exam how goals-related practice and targeted feedback can promote student learning.

Session 4: Principle 6 (Development & Climate), Principle 7 (Self-Directed Learning) & Conclusion (Applying the Principles)
