DEIT recommends a recent EDUCAUSE online session given by James Lang of Assumption College. The webinar introduced three core learning principles that can help us make powerful, positive changes to the ways in which we design and teach college courses: the power of retrieval practice to promote the mastery of core skills and content; the benefit of helping learners connect new learning to their existing knowledge; and the important role that curiosity plays in motivating student learning.
To view the webinar you will need to set up an EDUCAUSE profile (free to the DeSales community). Contact DEIT if you need assistance. EDUCAUSE has many great teaching and learning resources in addition to this webinar.
