Six Things You Should Know About How Your Brain Learns

Six Things You Should Know About How Your Brain Learns | Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Whether you want to learn a new language, learn to cook, take up a musical instrument, or just get more out of the books you read, it helps to know how your brain learns. While everyone learns slightly differently, we do have similarities in the way our brains take in new information, and knowing how this works can help us choose the most efficient strategies for learning new things.

Six Things You Can Do to Deepen Student Learning | Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Most courses don’t need a complete overhaul, but there are a lot of small improvements you could make that will have a big impact on learning and engagement.
Louisa Lambregts's insight:
“Students are going to learn a lot better and retain learning a lot longer if they’re working on whole tasks,” said Griffin. “Make them feel like there’s purpose and meaning to the class, rather than just jumping through the hoops of learning what you want them to learn so they can regurgitate it on the test.”

Using Context to Deepen and Lengthen Learning

Using Context to Deepen and Lengthen Learning | Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Nearly every teacher has experienced students forgetting something important. This forgetfulness comes in various forms. It might involve not following instructions for an assignment, missing a due date, forgetting important details on a test, or even forgetting to take the test itself. Whatever the memory infraction, there are usually good reasons why students forget. Gratefully, there are a few simple ways teachers can build context to help students achieve deeper and longer lasting learning.

Seven Mistakes to Avoid When Writing Multiple-Choice Questions

Seven Mistakes to Avoid When Writing Multiple-Choice Questions | Design for Learning | Scoop.it
The goal of any well-constructed test is to test students’ expertise on a topic and not their test-taking skills. We need to eliminate as many flaws in our questions as we can to “provide a level playing field for testwise and not-so-testwise students. The probability of answering a question correctly should relate to an examinee's expertise on the topic and should not relate to their expertise on test-taking strategies.” (NMBE, 2001, p 19)
Louisa Lambregts's insight:

Test students on their knowledge -- not their test-taking skills.

You’re asking the wrong question. No, seriously, you’re probably asking the wrong question.

Yeah, that’s a pretty bold statement. But I've read tens of thousands of questions meant to prompt discussions in online course rooms, and the odds are I am right.

Diversifying the Role Course Content Plays

Diversifying the Role Course Content Plays | Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Peter Burkholder’s recently published piece in The History Teacher (highlighted in the October issue of The Teaching Professor) is another reminder of how much we need a different way of thinking about course content.

We all pretty much agree that we try to cover too much material in our courses, programs, and majors, but the thought of leaving things out often causes personal and profession anguish. We argue with ourselves that a certain piece of content is too important to cut, and our students need to know the information to pass certifying exams and to get jobs. Then there are departmental expectations. Most courses establish knowledge bases for subsequent courses. Our colleagues are depending on us. We further complicate matters by making course and instructor reputations a function of content quantity. A decrease in the amount covered means lower standards and a dilution of the intellectual currency of the course. Bottom line: We know we’ve got a problem, but these realities and our thinking have us backed into a corner.
Louisa Lambregts's insight:

"What would you have the student remember from your course? That perspective makes it easier to envision a larger role for content in a course."
