Studying a particular lesson, the Stanford researchers showed that when the order was reversed, students’ performances improved substantially. While the study has broad implications about how best to employ interactive learning technologies, it also focuses specifically on the teaching of neuroscience and underscores the effectiveness of a new interactive tabletop learning environment, called BrainExplorer, which was developed by Stanford GSE researchers to enhance neuroscience instruction.

If students make a mistake consistently, correction does not come easily without instant feedback. If questions arise while doing the work, too much time will pass before they can ask. But I quickly realized--if we were to shift basic concepts and introductory examples to outside of class, we could be discussing problems and allow for more practice time in class.

Class time is devoted to solving equations, conducting lab experiments and working on group research projects. Van Oudenhove said he likes that much of the basic instruction for chemistry class happens outside of the classroom. “If we spent all class listening to lectures and taking down notes, we wouldn’t be able to do this,” he said, in an interview last week, gesturing towards a table where his lab partners were busy creating a reaction with baking soda and acetic acid.
