Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning by James M. Lang
Instructors are short on time. We know that. However, we also know that instructors at UWSP care deeply about
their students and want to be as effective as possible with the time they devote to their courses. James M. Lang,
author of Cheating Lessons (2013) and On Course (2008), has recently published a new book with your needs in mind,
Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning. In this book, Lang distills recent research on learning
and educational psychology and provides easy-to-implement, real-world
examples to show how making small, evidence-based changes to your everyday teaching practice can foster student learning.
Join us for a three-part discussion of this book this spring.
Those who commit to attending at least 2 of 3 sessions will receive a free copy of the book.
