Description

This interactive session will examine neuroscience applications to teaching and learning and suggest a solution to problems of cognitive load, repetitive approaches to lecturing, and lack of student engagement. When we pause at critical moments during teaching sessions, we allow students to focus, refocus, refresh, and review learning for maximum retention. Goals:

a) Describe two guiding principles of transformative teaching

b) Identify ways to bring new life to classroom lectures
