Evidence-Based Teaching in Higher Ed: Strategies to Improve Student Learning

Maryellen Weimer and Victor Benassi
A conversation with Maryellen Weimer and Victor Benassi

Research is helping to unravel the mysteries of the brain and how people learn, but questions persist.

What exactly is the science of learning? What has it taught us about how students learn? And how can you use this information to make your own curriculum more evidence-based?

Get answers to these and other questions when you attend Evidence-Based Teaching in Higher Education: Strategies to Improve How Your Students Learn on Tuesday, December 1.

Your Presenters:
  • Victor Benassi, PhD, professor of psychology and director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, University of New Hampshire
  • Maryellen Weimer, PhD, editor of The Teaching Professor and professor emeritus, Penn State Berks.
During the presentation, Weimer and Benassi will explore the results of research on teaching and learning and introduce you to a range of practical strategies that can make your own teaching more evidence-based and, as a result, improve your students’ ability to learn.

Find out what the research says about what works and what doesn’t in today’s college classroom.

Register now for the early-bird price of $247—a savings of $50.
