As my last post noted, my mind is inclined to go for a walk during seminars if I’m not careful.
There are hundreds of thousands of apps, tools, and websites that teachers could learn from.

By Kovie Biakolo for Thought Catalog I grew up in a house of academics - both my parents were university professors with varying degrees of contributions as public intellectuals in their respective fields. In my upbringing, education wasn't something you went to school and "did" for a couple of hours a day - it was and is a part of my identity, it shapes the way I think and feel and believe; education is a vocation.
Anchoring effect applies to pinckers silly claim that violence has decreased thru history...so what, even if it were true...the negativity bias applies also, as the worldwide threats are actually important. There is plenty of violence to go around, ask the syrians, and holocaust survivors.
How did you first become interested in philosophy? I can remember as a very young child asking the question, "How does a baby learn to speak?"
You are the best teacher in the world and you’ve just turned in your grades for the best class you’ve ever taught.
One of the reasons that instructors tend to overemphasize “coverage” over “engaged thinking” is that they do not fully appreciate the role of questions in teaching content. Consequently, they assume that answers can be taught separate from questions. Indeed, so buried are questions in established instruction that the fact that all assertions — all statements that this or that is so — are implicit answers to questions is virtually never recognized. For example, the statement that water boils at 100 degrees centigrade is an answer to the question “At what temperature centigrade does water boil?” Hence every declarative statement in the textbook is an answer to a question.
As a Learned Society, we aim to promote, advance and disseminate psychological knowledge. Access to all these journals and a host of other online resources will soon be changing to be via PsychSource . Developed in partnership with Wiley-Blackwell, the PsychSource web portal will provide a single access point to a host of BPS resources, including journals, books, multimedia, and more.
Magical things can happen when you enthusiastically open your mouth on the internet. One of these magical things is learning how personal experience shapes people’s lives. Looking into others causes you to look into yourself. And then something really magical happens – we learn we are not alone.
Why should you, as a psychology student, or indeed any other kind of student, need to learn computer programming? My position on this is that the basics of computer programming should be taught to everyone , preferably in schools, at a young age. I think the benefits of this could be enormous – programming (just like learning any other language) expands the mind, and teaches you to think in new ways. In particular programming languages force the user to think algorithmically, and by their very nature instantiate the basics of formal logic.
"Keep the Customer Satisfied". A longitudinal study of students' emotions, experiences and achievements at the University of JoensuuEmail: Juhani.Rautopuro@Joensuu.fi & Pertti.Vaisanen@Joensuu.fi Introduction In our era of close accountability, when governments require quality assurance from publicly funded institutions, universities have become prime targets of economic scrutiny. In addition to these accountability requirements, there has always been a more important and fundamental reason for having more systematic ways of paying attention to quality in educational environments. Educational institutions have the provision of education of the highest possible quality as one of their primary purposes and obligations to their customers, i.e., to the community and their students. Rapid social, technological and economic changes mean that educational institutions constantly need to evaluate their programs, structures and processes and strive to ensure that they serve the changing needs of the community and the students.
by Emily Hanford College students spend a lot of time listening to lectures. But research shows there are better ways to learn. And experts say students need to learn better because the 21st century economy demands more well-educated workers. Lecturing was invented as a way to share information in a time before books were widely available. Now, there are better approaches.
Digital literacy can boost employability and improve student experience | Higher Education Network | Guardian Professional"The nature of knowledge is changing and, in this digital age, our definition of basic literacy urgently needs expanding" Photograph: Nick Gregory / Alamy/Alamy The nature of knowledge is changing and, in this digital age, our definition of basic literacy urgently needs expanding. With an estimated 90% of UK jobs requiring some level of IT competency , the notion of digital literacy – those capabilities that equip an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society – is one that needs to be taken seriously by colleges and universities.
Start date: 2011-03-01 End date: 2011-07-31 Status: complete Funding Initiative: Higher Education Academy This project considers student engagement in curriculum design and delivery, particularly the inter-relationship between institutional levels of governance and leadership and course level design and delivery - and indeed the individual level of student learning and achievement. The project is particularly interested in ensuring informed and active student participation in curriculum design and delivery.
