Keep Moving It Forward

The summer of 2020 saw the coming together of the EnEd Friday Forum members with a book study of the Susan Ambrose, et al. publication, “How Learning Works: 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching”.
Driven by the Introduction guidance of “learning results from what the student does and thinks and only from what the student does and thinks, and the teacher can advance learning only by influencing what the student does to learn,” the EEF Friday Forum membership explored lesson construction/delivery strategies and classroom environment design proven to lead to student success.
The engagement of faculty during this summer endeavor has spurred a Fall 2020 book study beginning October 2nd with the National Academies book, “How People Learn, Part II”.
