S175 Coverdell

There is now a fairly large body of work from the learning sciences providing us with insights into how people learn; and from Chemistry Education Research (CER) we know what discipline-specific difficulties students face. However, it is quite surprising that relatively little of this understanding has made its way into the design of science and engineering curricula offered at most colleges and universities. While there is much discussion of evidence based reform, most of these efforts are focused on incorporating pedagogical techniques, rather than redesigning the curriculum and the concomitant assessments of student learning in light of evidence from research. This presentation will focus on the need for evidence based curriculum reform, the research findings that can guide such reforms, and how we might assess the results of these reforms. Examples of curriculum reform efforts and assessment strategies will be presented. Details

400 Chemistry Building

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a pedagogy that encourages students taking introductory STEM classes to be more active in their own learning, thus improving their problem solving skills, ability to work in teams, and success in introductory science courses. This National Speaker Series talk will review the PLTL research and provide recommendations for best practices to educators who wish to integrate PLTL in their courses. Training students to learn effectively in this environment will be discussed in addition to the training of peer leaders. More information about PLTL and cPLTL can be found at: http://cpltl.iupui.edu/ Details
