Keynote Speaker 1: The scientific approach to teaching: Research as a basis for course design -- 603 -- Plenary

10:25 - 11:25 on Tuesday, 11 September 2012 in Main Theatre

Discussions of teaching – even some publications – abound with anecdotal evidence. Our intuition often supplants a systematic, scientific approach to finding out what works and what doesn't work. Yet, research is increasingly demonstrating that our gut feelings about teaching are often wrong. In this talk I will discuss some research my group has done on gender issues in science courses and on the effectiveness of classroom demonstrations.
