We had a great time at the 2013 Celebration of Teaching and Learning on Friday, and hope those of you who were able to attend did as well!
The editorial team wanted to share just a few of our favorite moments from the 2013 Celebration of Teaching and Learning.
- I learned the importance of spaced retrieval and how Anki – Keith Lyle’s electronic flashcard program – can support this concept.
- Ben Motz presented research that challenged my assumption about best practiced with group work. I need to further investigate whether heterogeneous or homogeneous groups are better.
- Terry Doyle’s session reinforced that time x practice = mastery.
- I was reminded that there are several brain-based technological “freebies” out there. One of my favorites is Lumosity.
- I enjoyed hearing about all of the tools and strategies that can support brain-based learning, including Tegrity, just-in-time teaching, flipping the classroom, wikis, and rubrics.
- Terry Doyle said if there was one thing that stuck with us from everything he said, he hoped it was the importance of giving cumulative tests. It stuck.
- I had a great time participating in the Twitter backchannel. Not only did I get to learn from Terry and Ben, but I was able to “engage my social brain” by considering and making sense of what I was learning with colleagues from across UofL.
