#FCISSummer19



NEW COLLABORATION WITH THE KLINGENSTEIN CENTER!


There is a lot to learn in the world. Students can’t learn everything, and educators can’t teach everything. Especially not over, and over, and over again each time students forget. What can we do to improve learning and reduce forgetting? How can we use our limited amount of classroom time and make learning stick?

Based on more than 100 years of research, cognitive scientists have established powerful tools that substantially improve learning for diverse students, subject areas, and education rigor. In this workshop, cognitive scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D., illuminates key discoveries and practical teaching strategies from the science of learning, while challenging our ingrained beliefs about how learning works. Everyone learns, every second of every day – but that doesn’t mean we always make the most of it.
