Join the KU Life Span Institute and Dr. Janis Bulgren at the Museum at Prairiefire for a Science Happy Hour on May 22! In 100 years, teaching tools have moved from using slates and blackboards to white boards and tablets, and more recently, cloud-based or online learning. At the same time, learning outcomes have changed from testing students on knowledge of facts to evaluating reasoning and collaborative understanding. Janis Bulgren, University of Kansas research professor, will discuss the research behind adapting to these challenges in the classroom. She will discuss pioneering ways students can organize information to prime them for applications of higher order reasoning, and how a Google app helps teachers and students unlock new ways of learning.
