The ELATE (Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering) team is excited to be hosting its Annual Teaching and Learning Conference in May 2022.
We are delighted to welcome this year’s Keynote Presenter and Workshop Leader: Dr. Pooja K. Agarwal, a cognitive scientist and Professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Dr. Agarwal has been researching how students learn since 2005 and is author of the book Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning. She also founded Unleash the Science of Learning – Retrieval Practice, a repository of research results and teaching resources based on the science of learning.
In the keynote and workshop, participants will learn about research-based teaching strategies to improve student learning, including retrieval practice, spacing, interleaving, and metacognition. Emphasis will be placed on how to incorporate these practical strategies into existing teaching practices.
