Cognitive psychology and educational psychology are uncovering a great deal about how we learn. Unfortunately, though, neuromyths still dominate a great deal of the discussion about learning. In this presentation, Lauren Hays will share current research on learning and lead a discussion of how to use the strategies in librarianship.
If you lead trainings, teach classes, or host workshops, then you are engaged in education, and it is important to design instruction that is based in the science of how people learn.
As a result of this program, attendees will learn how to:
1. Describe learning strategies that are based in research.
2. Determine how to use research-based learning strategies in training and instruction.
3. Identify where they can use research-based learning strategies in their own work.
