Supporting Students To Transfer Learning: CTE Master Teachers

Event date: Tuesday, April 02, 2013, from 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM
Location: CTE - UNH 3030

Supporting Students To Transfer Learning: CTE Master Teachers

Moderated By: Vandana Thadani, PhD, Psychology
Featuring: Elissa Grossman and Jeremy McCallum

Each year the CTE selects some of our own as “Master Teachers” – instructors, who, through a variety of means, provide enriching, rigorous learning experiences for our students. In this presentation CTE Master Teachers, Elissa Grossman (CBA, Management) and Jeremy McCallum (Seaver CSE, Chemistry and Biochemistry) will share some of their strategies for promoting transfer in students – that is, helping students apply knowledge they learned in class, readings, labs to other contexts (course projects, real world problems, and their own lives). As many of us know, transfer is often difficult to achieve because it requires students to both deeply understand course material and be motivated to work through challenging problems. This presentation will allow us to learn from, borrow, and adapt some powerful practices by LMU’s own highly talented teachers.

This presentation is part of Vandana Thadani's CTE Faculty Associate Project on Learning and Teaching Environments that Foster Transfer.

Lunch will be provided.
