How learning works : seven research-based principles for smart teaching by Susan A Ambrose( Book )

22 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Inside Flap: Any conversation about effective teaching must begin with a consideration of how students learn. However, instructors may find a gap between resources that focus on the technical research on learning and those that provide practical classroom strategies. How Learning Works provides the bridge for such a gap. In this volume, the authors introduce seven general principles of learning, distilled from the research literature as well as from twenty-seven years of experience working one-on-one with college faculty. They have drawn on research from a breadth of perspectives (cognitive, developmental, and social psychology; educational research; anthropology; demographics; and organizational behavior) to identify a set of key principles underlying learning-from how effective organization enhances retrieval and use of information to what impacts motivation. These principles provide instructors with an understanding of student learning that can help them see why certain teaching approaches are or are not supporting student learning, generate or refine teaching approaches and strategies that more effectively foster student learning in specific contexts, and transfer and apply these principles to new courses. For anyone who wants to improve his or her students' learning, it is crucial to understand how that learning works and how to best foster it. This vital resource is grounded in learning theory and based on research evidence, while being easy to understand and apply to college teaching

The woman's guide to navigating the Ph. D. in engineering & science by Barbara B Lazarus( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed to unravel some of the mystery around graduate school programs in science and engineering, this one-stop resource reinforces strategies for succeeding in graduate school. Qualitative interviews offer firsthand stories and tips from women who have found success in academia, industry, and the public sector. Each chapter covers a different aspect of graduate school, from identifying funding sources, to writing the dissertation, to looking for a job. The Woman's Guide to Navigating the Ph.D. in Engineering & Science also focuses on the emotional and social difficulties that women may experience, and offers practical suggestions and advice for surviving and thriving in graduate school. Featured topics include: funding, requirements and standards, qualifiers; making the advising process work; writing and defending the dissertation; searching for a job; learning by critique; and balancing competing needs." "The goal of The Woman's Guide to Navigating the Ph.D. in Engineering & Science is to help women overcome the stereotypes and hidden barriers that they might encounter in graduate school, so that they will emerge ready for careers in the academic, corporate, or public sector."--BOOK JACKET

Higher education's road to relevance : navigating complexity by Susan A Ambrose( )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawn heavily on research, What Comes Next in Higher Ed makes the case for why change is needed in post-secondary education and provides a promising path forward for new networks and ecosystems of learning and workforce development. Instead of using a university-centric approach, Dr. Ambrose and Dr. Wankel see the need for leadership in creating and nurturing networks and ecosystems that include employers, K-12 educators, post-secondary educators, and policy-makers. These ecosystems recognize and endorse multiple pathways to creating and credentialing self-directed learners who can meet the needs of a rapidly changing employment, social, and political landscape. In this book, Dr. Ambrose and Dr. Wankel provide an integrative approach that will enable administrators of all levels to understand the forces that result in the call to change, and provide a roadmap for how to think about their response given their role and institution, e.g., who is their current learner audience and who might/should it be, how will they adapt structures and pedagogies to address the learner audiences to what end. While all of these issues are written and talked about in various publications, they are dispersed. This book will bring them all together, making it more likely that educators and administrators will read it"--
How learning works : 7 research-based principles for smart teaching by Susan A Ambrose( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any conversation about effective teaching must begin with a consideration of how students learn. However, instructors may find a gap between resources that focus on the technical research on learning and those that provide practical classroom strategies. How Learning Works provides the bridge for such a gap. Distilling the research literature and translating the scientific approach into language relevant to a college or university teacher, this book introduces seven general principles of how students learn. The authors have drawn on research from a breadth of perspectives (cognitive, developmental, and social psychology; educational research; anthropology; demographics; organizational behavior) to identify a set of key principles underlying learning, from how effective organization enhances retrieval and use of information to what impacts motivation. Integrating theory with real-classroom examples in practice, this book helps faculty to apply cognitive science advances to improve their own teaching
Higher education's road to relevance : navigating complexity by Susan A Ambrose( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The post-secondary educational system has undergone dramatic changes and experienced immense stress in the past two decades. Once regarded as the logical next step toward career opportunities and financial security, higher education is a subject of growing uncertainty for millions of people across the United States. It is more common than ever to question the return on investment, skyrocketing cost, and student debt burden of going to college. Prospective students, and many employers, increasingly view attending institutions of higher learning as inadequate preparation for entering the 21st century workforce. In response to these and other challenges, leading voices are demanding strengthened accountability and measurable change. Higher Education's Road to Relevance illustrates why change is needed in post-secondary education and offers practical solutions to pressing concerns. The authors, internationally recognized experts in college-level teaching and learning innovation, draw heavily from contemporary research to provide an integrative approach for post-secondary faculty, staff, and administrators of all levels. This timely book helps listeners identify the need for leadership in developing new networks and ecosystems of learning and workforce development
Applying science of learning in education : infusing psychological science into the curriculum by Victor Benassi( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited book represents a sliver, albeit a substantial one, of the scholarship on the science of learning and its application in educational settings. Most of the work described in this book is based on theory and research in cognitive psychology. Although much, but not all, of what is presented is focused on learning in college and university settings, teachers of all academic levels may find the recommendations made by chapter authors of service. Authors wrote their chapters with nonexperts as the target audience - teachers who may have little or no background in science of learning, research-based approaches to teaching and learning, or even general principles of psychological science. The book is organized in three sections. The 14 chapters in Part 1 address important concepts, principles, theories, and research findings, and applications related to the science of learning. The four chapters in Part 2 focus on preparing faculty to apply science of learning principles in their courses. Finally, the six chapters in Part 3 provide examples of research that have been done in real academic settings and that have applied one or more science of learning principles." -- Book homepage
