Prepared to Learn

Professor Terry Doyle spoke to a packed auditorium of Colorado professors at the Teacher Scholar Forum.  He taught us about the neuroscience behind learning, which focused on the things students need to be prepared to learn.  

Here's a link to Dr. Doyle's PowerPoint on his blog, which is probably worth subscribing to!

"It is the one who does the work that does the learning."  Passive absorption of lecture material is so old fashioned!  Time to have active learning take place in the classroom!
