Foundations of Teaching & Learning

August 22, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In health science we transition between bench-top or clinical research and practice and vice-versa; we ask ourselves and our students to practice evidence-based medicine.  The same is true for education – we translate what we know from cognitive psychology, education and physiology into our classrooms.  There is a great deal of research pertaining to what works and what does not work with respect to student learning.  In this program, the facilitator will translate research from a variety of areas into practical application.  Participants will gain a better understanding of why things like the flipped classroom work and leave confident in their ability to design courses with key elements while having a bit of fun in the process. 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, August 16, at 5 p.m.
