CTL COMMON READ: Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
Join us for a brown bag discussion of readings related to teaching and learning. Our Fall 2016 reading will be Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning (2014). By Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel.
"To most of us, learning something 'the hard way' implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners." (From: makeitstick.com)
