Newly Qualified Teachers And Impostor Syndrome Reading Time: 5 minutes Do you know what you are doing? Fake, fraud, phoney, quack. Simple Ways to Integrate Four Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies When educators understand the science behind teaching practices they can more readily incorporate them into their daily instruction, says Cult of Pedagogy’s Jennifer Gonzalez. In her podcast and accompanying post, Gonzalez highlights the four key teaching strategies researcher that Pooja Agarwal and K–12 teacher Patrice Bain feature in their new book, Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning. They explain the science behind the suggestions, many of which are familiar, as well as best practices and applications for each one. Retrieval practice: The goal is for students to recall information from memory and reinforce learning through quick daily assessments. Evidence shows that actively accessing learned material—rather than merely reteaching it—boosts retention.
Online Flashcards - Browse the Knowledge Genome Introducing the Knowledge Genome The Knowledge Genome Project is the initiative to catalog the world's entire body of "learnable" knowledge into its most fundamental Q&A pairs. We have aimed to make information accessible in this format so that Brainscape's adaptive learning engine can use it to help anyone learn anything as fast and efficiently as humanly possible. The flashcards in this Knowledge Genome are distributed as complete "Classes". A student, teacher, professor, or publisher can easily create a Class and divide it into various Decks of flashcards.
Hattie effect size list - 256 Influences Related To Achievement John Hattie developed a way of synthesizing various influences in different meta-analyses according to their effect size (Cohen’s d). In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked 138 influences that are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects. Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied was 0.40. Therefore he decided to judge the success of influences relative to this ‘hinge point’, in order to find an answer to the question “What works best in education?” Originally, Hattie studied six areas that contribute to learning: the student, the home, the school, the curricula, the teacher, and teaching and learning approaches.
Peter Felten: «Education is human work, and students need to be the actors in that work» - Info Peter Felten has visited Bilbao to participate in EuroSoTL 2019, where he has given a lecture entitled “Relationships matter: Moving relationship-rich experiences from the periphery to the center of higher education learning and teaching”. The SoTL or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning concept is very widespread in English-speaking countries, but it is not a familiar one in Spain, Italy and France. Peter Felten is a professor of history, assistant provost for teaching and learning, and executive director of the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University (USA). His current research focuses on the influence of human relationships, and on individual and institutional change, in undergraduate education. You conduct research into the importance of human relations in university education.
