This workshop lays the foundation for understanding how we learn and pedagogical strategies to enhance this process in our classrooms.  The topics discussed in the workshop will be based on the research principles for learning found in the book, “How Learning Works, 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching” by Ambrose, et. al.  This book is utilized as a reference by the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence in their “New Course Academy” and also by the Leonhard Center in the College of Engineering when discussing principles for learning in their education workshops.  The strategies to enhance learning will be contextualized using examples that have been successfully employed by ECoS faculty in their classrooms.   The participants will be provided with a list of possible activities to develop and will select one that they would like to try in their classroom.  As part of the workshop exercises they will have the opportunity to work on this activity and obtain feedback from the group.
