Faculty Professional Development - The Science of Learning

Significant advances in brain research provide insight into the processes of cognition. Applying this research through subtle shifts in teaching yields greater student learning and retention. Group members have opportunities to discuss current research and its application in the university classroom through a session format designed to offer flexibility and foster peer relationships. Participants should expect to attend two 120 minute face-to-face sessions with possible reading material beyond these times. Sessions are considered true WORKshops with attendees applying ideas to the courses they teach.

WORKshop Session One - Applying the Science of Learning to Instruction 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. September 28 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Location to be determined. WORKshop Session Two - Considering Brain Research in Course Design 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. October 26 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Location to be determined.
