Event Details

Enhancing Teaching and Learning: Lessons from Social Psychology 

 

Over the past 22 years, the Claremont Symposium on Applied Social Psychology has examined a broad range of topics crucial to our understanding of human relationships and the building of a healthy, diverse society. The 2009 Claremont Symposium will continue this tradition as we consider applications of social psychology to teaching and learning.

This one-day conference, co-sponsored by Claremont Graduate University and Xavier University of Louisiana, will be held in Claremont, California on Saturday, March 28, 2009. The conference will consider questions such as:

  • How and why do student experiences in higher-education differ?
  • How can educators best support student well-being?
  • From where does student motivation come?
  • How can help our students become better citizens and better people?
  • How do professors' behaviors impact student motivation and learning?
  • What constitutes a high-quality, engagement-fostering relationship between student and teacher?
  • How can professors bridge racial, ethnic, or generational divides?
  • How can the scholarship of teaching and learning optimize teaching and enhance student learning?

The conference will bring together psychological scientists and educators working in higher-education settings. The meeting will feature four keynote speakers, two panels addressing student and faculty development, poster presentations by audience members, and opportunities for in-depth discussion of strategies for applying speakers’ ideas to higher education.

Who should attend?

  • Academics interested in applied social psychology
  • Academics interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning
  • College teachers interested in understanding and applying the psychology of teaching and learning

 

Claremont Colleges faculty and staff are welcome to register at the $20 student rate.
