BRITE Ideas: Student Learning Dispositions: What are they, how we can measure them, and what are the implications for teaching?
Learning is not simply a function of cognition, rather, learning is mediated and moderated by a range of beliefs and emotions. Join Julie Reynolds, Associate Professor of the Practice, Biology, as we explore how teaching techniques can impact these learning dispositions in positive and negative ways. Various personal dimensions, particularly motivation, self-efficacy beliefs, and epistemic beliefs, can change in response to teaching and affect student learning. Reynolds will also share her research, which has considered the combined contribution of these dimensions to student learning in the context of disciplinary writing. BRITE Ideas is a monthly teaching and research series event and is cosponsored by BRITE Lab and Duke Learning Innovation.
Please feel free to bring your lunch. Light refreshments will be provided.
