We Talked About This Last Semester! Why Students Don’t Remember and What We Can Do About It

December 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

We Talked About This Last Semester!  Why Students Don’t Remember and What We Can Do About It

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., Friday, December 13, 2019, Beard 200 & Karpen 103

Our memories fail us often. Sometimes these memory slips are simple and fairly innocuous like forgetting to pick up an item at the grocery store and other times, forgetting can be much more dire and even have serious consequences such as in a patient care setting. During this program, we will discuss forgetting in terms of classroom or experiential learning and answer questions like: What is a reasonable amount students will remember? Why do they forget? What can we do about forgetting? At the end of the session, participants will leave with strategies they can implement in their class, and maybe more importantly, systemically within a curriculum.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Tuesday, December 10, at 5 p.m.
