dB-SERC Lunch 11/30
Date: Monday, November 30, 2015
Time: 12-1 pm
Place: 321 Allen Hall

Topic: Innovating Large Undergraduate Psychology Lectures with Learning Principles from Cognitive Science

During the lunch, Dr. Timothy Nokes-Malach from the psychology department will discuss how he is transforming a large-enrollment psychology course based on several learning principles from cognitive science.
Learning is robust if it leads to long-term retention, transfers to new contexts, and/or promotes future learning. Several cognitive processes that promote robust learning include self-explanation, analogical comparison, and memory-retrieval practice. Dr. Nokes-Malach, along with his graduate student Cristina Zepeda, received a dB-SERC course transformation award to “flip” classroom instruction by providing students opportunities to engage in activities based on the cognitive processes mentioned above (i.e., self-explanation, analogical comparison, and memory-retrieval practice). The purpose of the lunch is to discuss the implementation of the course transformation and also to provide feedback about implementation difficulties and assessment.
