|Description:||This is a practical and active workshop for all faculty that distills the latest research on how students learn into tested techniques and best practices that work. Decades of research have brought an explosion of knowledge about how human evolution has shaped the way we process, think, and remember. Technology also provides new ways for students to receive first contact with material, enhanced opportunities to connect and create community, better ways to ensure that students are prepared for class, and new options for the sequence of learning encounters and activities. Teaching is largely a design problem, andwe need to design our classes for the brain inthe body.This workshop will suggest lots of easy techniques to improve student learning while providing a process (see figure below) to guide faculty in creating better modules and courses. It follows the design process in the Teaching Naked Techniques book|
