Presenter: Ellen Yezierski, Center for Teaching Excellence, Director.

Recent studies about the prevalence of “neuromyths” (misconceptions about brain research and how they apply to teaching and learning) held by educators at all levels demonstrate a need for us to align our ideas with neuro, cognitive, and learning science. In this interactive and individualized workshop, we will explore the most prevalent neuromyths in higher education, identify how they influence our course design and teaching decisions, and develop alternatives grounded in evidence-based theory about how people learn. Please bring at least one syllabus and one assignment description (hard copies or electronically) to work on during the session.
