Literature seminar series with thematic discussions on chapters from: How Learning Works – Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching

Chapter 2 How Does the Way Students Organize Knowledge Affect Their Learning? 
(14/10 12:15-13)

During this year's literature seminars, we will read and discuss the chapters in the book "How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching" by Ambrose, Bridges, DiPietro, Lovett, and Norman (see; available within UU's network). The chapters are independent of each other, so you can follow the whole series or come and discuss individual chapters. We will end in June with a summary of the whole seminar series.

The book describes in an easily accessible way different tools, principles and research underpinnings for enhancing learning, and can be seen as an independent progression from the course in Student-active learning. You do not need prior experience in/knowledge of STEM education research, but for those who are interested we will also provide opportunities to explore these issues in more depth through other articles.

If you wish to have a salad (for which you will have to pay some tax - “förmånsbeskattad”) please send an e-mail to Pia Westerlund at the latest on Wednesday 9th October. Don´t forget to include any dietary requirements.

Time: Mondays 12:15 - 13:00.
