Using the Science of Learning for "Pandemic Teaching"

Event Description

Many students are struggling to stay focused, engaged, and motivated in today’s constantly changing, distracting, disconnected, and distance-learning environments due to the pandemic. Fortunately, research findings from the brain and cognitive sciences may provide insights to improve teaching and learning in online, blended, and in-person classrooms.

This virtual conference will bring the Science of Learning to educators and clinicians to help with the challenges of teaching online and in schools. You will explore the science behind how students learn and effective instruction; ways to boost motivation and support student autonomy; methods to keep students focused despite distraction; ideas for playful, active, and interactive learning experiences in any setting; strategies for reading and math; and ways to embed feedback and assessments in the classroom and online.
