How People Learn

Center for Teaching Development 2013-03-16

This week, I had the opportunity to join an all-staff meeting at Eleanor Roosevelt College to talk to them about how people learn. There were all kinds of people in the room, not just classroom instructors, and every one of them has the task of teaching, or supporting teaching, during the annual Orientation sessions for new ERC students. It was great to see such enthusiasm for making sure the incoming students have a valuable experience when they arrive at UCSD.

Here are the slides I showed, with a few corrections. If there were questions you didn’t have a chance to ask during the meeting, feel free to leave a comment below.
