Dr Pooja K. Agarwal
(Assistant Professor, Berklee College of Music, Boston)
15 November 2019 @ 4pm (GMT +1) | Webinar via Collaborate
When we think about learning, we typically focus on getting information into students’ heads. What if, instead, we focus on getting information out of students’ heads? In this interactive webinar, presented by a cognitive scientist and college professor, you will learn how to harness powerful evidence-based strategies, including retrieval practice, spacing, and feedback-driven metacognition. Without extra prepping or grading, take your instruction to the next level and transform your students’ long-term learning.
