Fall Perspectives on Teaching Conference
Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Social Science Centre, Room 2050Keynote Speaker:Dr. Mike AtkinsonDepartment of Psychology, Western University
Topic: The New Science of LearningThe students of today are somehow “different” than they were 30 years ago … but how? Do they approach the university with a different set of goals? Do they have different expectations? How do they learn? Much attention has been given to learning styles, learning preferences, multitasking, technology, and so on. But how do we move information from the external world and consolidate it into an event we call learning? Dr. Atkinson will discuss the new science of learning and consider the implications of cognitive science for today’s—and tomorrow's—universities.
