Welcome to a Zoom seminar in the TUR literature seminar series with thematic discussions on chapters from: How Learning Works – Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching.

Last Chapter:  Conclusion: Applying the Seven Principles to Ourselves.

In this seminar we conclude the discussions on the book by Ambrose, Bridges, DiPietro, Lovett, Norman (see below). Before this literature seminar, we will read the chapter Conclusion: Applying the Seven Principles to Ourselves. This concluding chapter applies the seven principles discussed in the book to the process of learning about teaching. Not only do the principles work together to provide solutions to many of the problems students encounter, but they also apply to the teachers. As this is the ending seminar in the series, we will also sum-up the whole seminar series.
Read the chapter and bring your own thoughts, ideas and experiences for an interesting and fruitful conversation! 

In this year's literature seminars, we have read and discussed the chapters of the book "How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching"" av Ambrose, Bridges, DiPietro, Lovett, och Norman (see 

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.
