The role of prior knowledge on learning
Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Event Type: 
Workshop
Event Location: 
CETL House #54: Lab
By Invitation Only: 
No

Students are not empty slates. They enter our classrooms with experiences and beliefs that shape their readiness to learn. Most of the time prior knowledge is the foundation for new learning, but sometimes prior knowledge can actually impede it. In this workshop, we will review the research on prior knowledge, beliefs and misconceptions, and we will generate strategies to capitalize on relevant prior knowledge and productively challenge student misconceptions.
