In this four-part, 90-minute series, Shana Carpenter (Psychology) Patrick Armstrong (Psychology), Clark Coffman (Genetics, Development, and Cell Biology), Monica Lamm (Chemical and Biological Engineering), Carly Manz (Genetics, Development, and Cell Biology) and Robert Reason (Education) will use evidence-based findings from their NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) grant to help you create effective instructional design...

...implementing findings from cognitive psychology research on retrieval practice that can be tailored for your classroom.

*This workshop series is now at capacity.*

This workshop series meets once weekly for four consecutive Thursdays:
September 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m.

Sept. 8 | Part 1: How do I include more active learning in my classroom?
Presenters will share research findings on the effective use of practice questions as tools for enhancing student learning, engagement, and metacognition. They will also share data from their NSF-sponsored studies on how they have implemented retrieval practice in their classrooms (biology and chemical engineering) and what the instructional design and implementation process was like for them. Participants are invited to ask questions, share ideas and begin designing an approach for how they might implement these tools in their own classrooms.

Sept. 15 | Part 2: How do I design better questions?
Participants are invited to bring or construct practice questions that could be used to assess student learning in their courses. Presenters will assist participants in developing initial plans to implement retrieval practice in their classrooms and share these ideas with the group for discussion and feedback.

Sept. 22 | Part 3: What do I do with this information?
Participants will return and share information about how the implementation affected student learning in their classrooms. The group will brainstorm further ideas for implementation and instructional design to help each other refine their approaches.

Sept. 29 | Part 4: What do I do next?
Participants are invited to use this session to create a uniquely tailored semester-long implementation plan for retrieval practice in future courses.
