Keynote speaker James M. Lang:
“Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning”
Lang will present a strategy for improving student learning with a series of modest but powerful changes that make a big difference—many of which can be put into practice in a single class session. The strategies build on the research on teaching and can be implemented by any faculty in any discipline, and even integrated into pre-existing teaching techniques.
