We usually teach according to a combination of our experience and our intuition. However, learning demonstrably improves when teaching is informed by evidence on the most effective practices. The body of evidence about the most effective practices in university science education has become both large and compelling. I will summarize the evidence and discuss both the barriers and the pathways to making changes in our teaching.

As teachers, we feel that often we go to a lot of work to teach and assist our students, yet the students do not always seem to put in as much effort as we are. They often do not study as much and as early as they should, and sometimes they do not even come to class. What can we do to change this? Is it even our responsibility to motivate the students, anyway? In this workshop we will discuss these questions as well as the theory (from cognitive science) and practice of student motivation. When students are motivated, they learn more-- and teaching is a lot more enjoyable, too.

Many of the most effective teaching practices involve spending some, or even most, of our time together in class having students answer questions, solve problems, and otherwise engage with our content. How can we spend time on these types of practices, yet also have enough time to “cover” all of the content that the students need to learn? I have good news for you in this workshop, which will help you banish the content monster from your classroom, while still allowing your students to learn more content (and truly understand it better) than they did before.

Our students will learn more, and more deeply, and remember what they learn for a longer time, if we focus our classes on what students will do and learn, instead of what we will say. But how can we do this? This workshop is a practical session that will show you how to make the change to focusing on student learning—and see what that means for planning each class day. Although it seems like a big change, it is one you can make gradually, and one that ultimately creates a lot of freedom and space for learning.
