Presenter: Michael Hubenthal (Senior Education Specialist, IRIS)
Abstract: Effective teaching has been frequently described as an art.
Such a claim is unfortunate as it implies that effectiveness is a "gift"
to be born with. While an artistic element undoubtedly is part of the
process, it is certainly not the only factor that can make one an
effective educator. By understanding how people learn, all faculty,
regardless of their artistic talents, can (re)design their instruction
(frequently with minor, incremental modifications) to more fully foster
students' mastery of identified learning goals. This talk will enhance
participants' ability to explain the process of cognition and encourage
them to consider what this says about the role of both students and
instructors in the classroom. Participants will also be able to apply
this knowledge to develop/revise lectures to more closely align with
best pedagogical practice. While examples included in the talk will
emphasize direct instruction (lecture), many concepts will have much
broader applicability to other pedagogical approaches.
