Syllabus Redesign Conference-Day 1

In how people learn on August 12, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Syllabus Redesign Conference at Fresno State went well. Lots of participation. Good attendance. Participants seemed to be engaged and interested.Ida M. Jones

I learned more about writing learning outcomes and about how people learn. In an earlier post I talked about the idea of interspacing brought up by one presenter and talked about its relationship to generative learning concepts I learned about at UCLA. Deliberately creating difficulty in learning (without making it impossibly difficult) is also another concept that was interesting. Dr. Oswald from our school, explained that making learning somewhat difficult helps us learn, as contrasted to just performing (e.g. on a test).
