"Uncommon Sense Teaching: Practical Tips from Neuroscience to Help Students Learn" by Dr. Barbara Oakley
Tuesday, March 15, 2022
11:00am-12:15pm
Virtual

Distinguished Professor of Engineering Barbara Oakley teaches Learning How to Learn (Coursera), one of the world’s largest student massive open online course, with over four million students. In this presentation, she will show you useful information about how you and those you teach can more easily master new and difficult material—whether in STEM, the humanities, or the social sciences, at undergraduate and graduate levels.

  • Discover how to help your students retain information long term, even when your students have different working memory capacities or are slower learners.
  • See what the patterns of expertise look like in the brain, and learn how to help students build those patterns in order to develop intuition.
  • Learn why it’s perfectly normal for students to not understand something difficult the first time its encountered.  You’ll see how knowledge of how the brain works can protect against feelings of frustration and failure when something seems difficult to learn
  • Dr. Oakley’s previous book, A Mind for Numbers, is a New York Times and international best-seller translated into over a dozen languages. Her most recent book is the critically acclaimed Uncommon Sense Teaching: Practical Insights in Brain Science to Help Students Learn.
