Designing for Learning and Persistence
Educators are all in the business of changing minds: We help spark new memories, guide
students in developing new skills, and invite our students to take new and different
perspectives. With an understanding of some key principles about how the mind works,
we can create learning experiences that are memorable, compelling and effective. But
there is a complication: These evidence-based approaches often require more effort
from students, not less, and without motivation to persist, students will miss out
on the benefits of well-designed, evidence-based learning activities. In this interactive
keynote address, Dr. Michelle Miller will discuss how to combine concepts from research
in the psychology of learning, motivation, and academic persistence to promote deep
and lasting learning.
We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including
