Track 1: Post-Pandemic Pedagogy
Keynote Workshop: FRIDAY OCT. 1 | 2:30 - 4:00 PM
The Science of Learning and Why It Matters for Post-Pandemic Teaching
Recent intersections between anthropology, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and educational research have yielded important findings about the ways in which students learn most effectively. This interactive workshop explores the biology of learning and how it can help us to engage students in synchronous, hybrid, and hyflex environments.
