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

Chapter 5 What Kinds of Practice and Feedback Enhance Learning?

Before this literature seminar, we will read chapter 5, which concerns practice and feedback. Read the chapter and bring your own thoughts, ideas and experiences for an interesting and fruitful conversation!

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.

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.
