How to Foster Deep Approaches and Achievements in Learning

Monday, August 25 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm * Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library, Room 271

Ken Bain, author of What the Best College Teachers Do, will host a pedagogy workshop as part of the Center for Teaching and Learning Speaker Series on Monday, August 25.

During this highly interactive seminar, Ken Bain will explore a core question associated with teaching and learning at the college level: How do you help and encourage students to achieve deep learning, learning that has a sustained and substantial influence on the way they will subsequently think, act, and perhaps even feel? Based on a 15-year study of outstanding teachers, this session will help participants develop concrete approaches that can transform student learning.
