An interactive discussion on his new book, “How Humans Learn: The Science and Stories behind Effective College Teaching”
November 27, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (PST)
Join Bryan Alexander and Joshua Eyler, Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Adjunct Associate Professor of Humanities at Rice University. Joshua is also the author of the new book, "How Humans Learn: The Science and Stories behind Effective College Teaching” -- our focus for this lively, interactive discussion.
As shared by the West Virginia Free Press, even on good days, teaching is a challenging profession. One way to make the job of college instructors easier, however, is to know more about the ways students learn. How Humans Learn aims to do just that by peering behind the curtain and surveying research in fields as diverse as developmental psychology, anthropology, and cognitive neuroscience for insight into the science behind learning.
