Literature seminar series with thematic discussions on chapters from: How Learning Works – Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching

Chapter 3 What Factors Motivate Students to Learn?
(11/11 12:15 - 13:00)

On this year's litterature seminars, we read and discuss the chapter of the book ""How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching"" av Ambrose, Bridges, DiPietro, Lovett, och Norman (se https://firstliteracy.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/How-Learning-Works.pdf).
The chapters are independent, so you can follow the whole series or come and discuss individual chapters. We end in June by a summary of the whole seminar series.

In an accessible way, the book describes tools, principles and research base for learning, and can be seen as an independent progression from the course in Student-active learning. You do not need prior experience/knowledge of subject didactics, but for those interested we will provide opportunities to go beyond the book through other articles.

If you wish to have lunch (for which you will have to pay some tax - “förmånsbeskattad”) please send an e-mail to Pia Westerlund pia.westerlund@uadm.uu.se at the latest on Tuesday 5th November. Don´t forget to include any dietary requirements.

Time: Mondays 12:15 - 13:00.
