The 2020 STEM Educators' Summit has been postponed to November 7th, 2020.
Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH-sponsored professional development events, programs and noncredit classes through April 5. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.
Our keynote speaker is G. Christian Jernstedt, PhD, Professor Emeritus and Research Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences; Director Emeritus, Center for Educational Outcomes, Dartmouth College; Adjunct Professor of Community and Family Medicine, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth; Co-Author, “Developing resources to teach and assess the core competencies: A collaborative approach” (2004, Academic Medicine). He specializes in human learning and speaks around the world, translating the complex findings from the cognitive, social, behavioral, and educational neurosciences for use in all areas of endeavor.
Dr. Jernstedt's research is in the area of learning as it occurs both in formal classroom settings and in natural environments. This research is directed towards understanding the breadth of learning, including its cognitive, behavioral, and affective aspects. He examines what leads to learning, what happens during learning, and what outcomes emerge from learning experiences. He has examined intentional learning, technologically enhanced learning, service learning, and experiential learning programs. (excerpt - Full Bio here)
