Plenary: The Application of Cognitive Psychology to Improve Teaching and Learning
Date & Time
Monday, June 15, 2020, 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Cynthia Nebel

Cognitive psychologists over the last century have identified six key strategies that promote learning in many situations, and this research can inform classroom learning. However, the research is not always translated into practice. During the talk, Dr. Nebel will describe the way in which cognitive research spans the laboratory to the classroom, and will discuss 6 key learning strategies that have been identified as particularly effective at improving student learning. Examples of how evidence-based learning strategies can be utilized in the classroom will be presented, as well as resources instructors can utilize to continue to learn more about evidence-based strategies in the future.
