Lectures at the Leading Edge: Going Beyond the Fads and Jargon: What Does Research Tell Us about Teaching for High Quality Learning in Science and Engineering?

March 6, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

GOING BEYOND THE FADS AND JARGON: WHAT DOES RESEARCH TELL US ABOUT TEACHING FOR HIGH QUALITY LEARNING IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING? 

There is much contemporary talk on how university teaching is outdated, and how radical change is needed to accommodate the needs of current students and the expectations of the workplace. Many of these calls, whether for active or problem-based learning fall into a longer and broader tradition of progressivism in education. To interrogate their applicability, a carefully formulated position is needed on knowledge and learning in science and engineering. In this talk, Jenni Case draws on contemporary research in engineering education to consider the nature of knowledge in the curriculum, and what we know about learning challenges in these fields, and how teaching can best support high quality learning outcomes.
