I am requesting funds to extend the work accomplished through a 2010 NDI grant (Learning about Learning). I propose to use the expertise I gained partly through that grant to lead an August 2011 Teaching Workshop based on the book How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School: Expanded Edition (2000) (HPL). This book reviews recent findings in the science of learning and outlines principles (e.g. connection with existing knowledge, exposure of misconceptions) that enhance not just learning, but deep learning. These principles, which can be applied in any discipline and for any type of pedagogical approach, are based on what we are discovering about how the brain works during the learning process. Participants will read HPL, complete several exercises, and prepare a presentation before arriving at the workshop. At the workshop, participants will incorporate principles form HPL into one of their fall 2011 courses. Post-workshop activities include assessing an HPL-inspired aspect of their fall course and writing a two to three page report/reflection at the end of the fall semester about their experiences in the classroom. Workshop participants will also do a presentation to their campus colleagues. As leader I will generate reading questions, organize the workshop, make on-site arrangements, identify supplementary readings, be responsive to formative feedback and collect the personal reflections/evaluations at the end of the fall semester. I will also use throughout the project the principles outlined in HPL so as to model the expertise I hope to develop in the workshop participants.
