The next dB-SERC lunch discussion will take place on Monday, November 19, 2018 from 12 – 1 pm in 321 Allen Hall. During the lunch, Dr Bilge Yurekli lead a discussion about the importance of productive struggle for student learning.
Effective teaching of mathematics requires engaging students in struggle with important mathematics. Although struggle has been the focus of both mathematics educators and cognitive scientists, it has been treated in different ways by these two groups. This talk will overview the instructional designs proposed by mathematics education and cognitive science researchers, identifying the contributions of each in understanding what makes struggle productive. Despite its focus on mathematics, this talk will introduce key instructional practices to promote productive struggle which can be applied to other disciplines in order to help students develop conceptual understanding.
