Evidence-Based Teaching in Higher Education: Strategies to Improve Student Learning
Tuesday, December 1, 2015 | 2-3 p.m. | UH 5120

As an instructor, are you looking for instructional methods that are more likely to help students learn and retain information longer? Ever wonder what the science of learning is and what it has taught us about how students learn? Want to learn how to make your own course/curriculum more evidence-based? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you may be interested in attending this webinar hosted by the UTC.

During the webinar, Maryellen Weimer, editor of The Teaching Professor, and Victor Benassi, a professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire, will explore the results of research on teaching and learning (the science of learning) and introduce you to a range of practical strategies that can make your own teaching more evidence-based and, as a result, improve your students' ability to learn when they study.
