CATL reading group on How Learning Works - July 16 & 23

This reading group will examine research-based learning principles and effective classroom teaching strategies.

CATL Reading Group - How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching
Wednesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 23, 12-1:15 p.m. (Lunch provided)
Numen Lumen 201

Wouldn’t it be handy if some authors synthesized recent learning research about mastery, metacognition, student motivation and development, course climate, and how students organize knowledge and then they suggested classroom strategies based on it? Wouldn’t it be nice if they did so in a very readable 224-page book? That’s what five authors did in How Learning Works: 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. Join your colleagues for a two-part discussion of this thought-provoking book over lunch on July 16 and 23. Register by June 5th to receive a copy of the book.
