Academy: Teaching@IUPUI: Teaching Students to Remember – The Science of Memory

Wednesday, October 11 2017 @ 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

Online ,Zoom

Presenter(s): Debora Herold, Andi Rehak
Audience: Faculty


Faculty expect their students to engage in study strategies that will lead to long-term retention of information. However, we rarely teach students which strategies are the most beneficial nor do we incorporate them into how we teach. In this webinar, participants will learn how memory works, how this information can be used to adapt the course structure, and how to incorporate activities into class sessions that will teach students to remember and apply what they are learning. Participants will walk away with specific strategies that they can incorporate in their classrooms immediately.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
