Fall 22 Book Discussion – Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning

Hybrid format (in person, but can accommodate virtual participation)

James Lang’s second edition of Small Teaching brings with it new evidence-based practices to improve student learning in bite-size pieces.  The book connects powerful new research from cognitive theory with practical strategies for deploying these insights in a modern classroom. Lang sets out to use research from the learning sciences to offer faculty small, practical changes they can make to their courses in order to improve students’ learning. Books will be provided. 

Bring you coffee, granola, fruit or wherever fuels you and join us for an informal discussion group! Participants will lead the conversations on what is most meaningful.
