Independent Learning Can Improve Outcomes: Three Professors Share the Secrets of Their Success


Learning from traditional textbooks alone isn’t effective for most students. That’s why a growing number of instructors are embracing new approaches to independent learning by creating their own customized textbooks, formative assessments and student-driven learning activities. But given the effort required and the lack of insight into student engagement, is it worthwhile? Three professors teaching different courses have tackled this question head-on. After embarking on years of research to prove the impact of their learning designs and materials, they’ll share their results and the secrets of their success.

Speakers:

Matthew Numer, Human Sexuality, Dalhousie University
Steven Forsey, Organic Chemistry, University of Waterloo
Charles Atwood, General Chemistry, University of Utah
