Dr. Lovett is the Senior Associate Director at the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence, Associate Research Professor in the Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon, and the co-author of “How Learning Works."
This talk represents a bridge between research on learning and the practice of teaching. It introduces seven principles for “How Learning Works,” distilled from research in cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, education, and diversity studies. Faculty in many different contexts have found that these principles apply to their teaching – across disciplines, across student levels, and across cultures. Participants in the session will have multiple opportunities to discuss how the principles apply and can be leveraged in the courses they teach.
