This learning community is open to all teaching faculty who are interested in research based practices for improving student learning. We’ll read How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching and examine the pedagogical research behind successful strategies for collecting evidence of student learning and documenting learning gains. Weekly meetings will address a variety of teaching contexts and emphasize practical adoption of effective practice. The discussion is intended for non-experts, but our learning community may spawn others for faculty interested in specific topics like memory, cognition, assessment, or instructional technology.

February 27th, March 6th, March 13th, (No meeting on March 21st due to Spring break), March 27th, April 3rd, and April 10th, April 17th, 2013
