Faculty Focus Webinar
"How the Brain Learns: Implications for Teaching and Learning"

In a new Magna Online Seminar How the Brain Learns: Implications for Teaching and Learning, two leaders in the field of metacognition will review what science now tells us about the learning process and share concrete classroom strategies and methods that are informed by that science.

This seminar by Leslie Myers and Melissa Terlicki is based on the highest-rated session from the 2013 Teaching Professor Conference.

During the upcoming seminar on Oct. 8, the two presenters will show that a deeper understanding of how the brain works can guide us toward pedagogy that:
  • creates a healthy environment for learning
  • structures the presentation of material for optimal comprehension
  • helps students form critical connections and elaborate on their learning
  • promotes the long-term retention of material
  • strengthens foundational learning
