Evidence-Based Teaching in Higher Education: Strategies to Improve Student Learning
What the research says about what works and what doesn’t in today’s college classroom
In an interview with Maryellen Weimer, editor of The Teaching Professor, Victor Benassi, a professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire, explores what the “science of learning” has established about the way students learn and provides recommendations for applying the resulting principles to teaching in colleges and universities.
So what exactly is the science of learning? What has it taught us about how students learn? And how can you use this information to make your own curriculum more evidence-based?
