As a teacher or other educator, you want to use instructional methods that are more likely to help students learn better and retain information longer—and that are also validated by research. There has been a lot of research done lately about teaching methods, and the results have given us a better understanding of which policies and practices have been proven to enhance student learning.
You could spend hours going through the research to learn about those approaches and decide which ones make sense for your students.
In an interview with Maryellen Weimer, Victor Benassi, a professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire will explore what the “science of learning” has established about the way students learn, and provide recommendations for applying the resulting principles to teaching in colleges and universities.
So what exactly is the science of learning? What has it taught us about how students learn? And how can you use this information to make your own curriculum more evidence-based?
