Instapaper
Is arguing the path towards learning? I assign students to groups the first day of class (typically three to four students in adjacent seats) and design each lecture around a series of seven to 10 clicker questions that cover the key learning goals for that day. The groups are told they must come to a consensus answer (entered with their clickers) and be prepared to offer reasons for their choice. It is in these peer discussions that most students do the primary processing of the new ideas and problem-solving approaches. The process of critiquing each other?s ideas in order to arrive at a consensus also enormously improves both their ability to carry on scientific discourse and to test their own understanding.

To do this effectively, teachers must first know where the students are starting from in their thinking, so they can build on that foundation. Then they must find activities that ensure that the students actively think about and process the important ideas of the discipline. Finally, instructors must have mechanisms by which they can probe and then guide that thinking on an ongoing basis. This takes much more than just mastery of the topic?it requires, in the memorable words of Lee Shulman, ?pedagogical content knowledge.?

Addressing Beliefs A second way teachers can improve instruction is by recognizing the importance of student beliefs about science.

Stimulating and Guiding Thinking My third example of how teaching and learning can be improved is by implementing the principle that effective teaching consists of engaging students, monitoring their thinking, and providing feedback. Given the reality that student-faculty interaction at most colleges and universities is going to be dominated by time together in the classroom, this means the teacher must make this happen first and foremost in the classroom.

This intervention also improves student interest, because the beliefs measured are closely linked to that interest.

The particular intervention we have tried addresses student beliefs by explicitly discussing, for each topic covered, why this topic is worth learning, how it operates in the real world, why it makes sense, and how it connects to things the student already knows.

anything the teacher can do to reduce that cognitive load while presenting the material will help. Some ways to do so are obvious, such as slowing down. Others include having a clear, logical, explicit organization to the class (including making connections between different ideas presented and connections to things the students already know), using figures where appropriate rather than relying only on verbal descriptions and minimizing the use of technical jargon. All these things reduce unnecessary cognitive demands and result in more learning.

Reducing Cognitive Load The first way in which one can use research on learning to create better classroom practices addresses the limited capacity of the short-term working memory. Anything one can do to reduce cognitive load improves learning. The effective teacher recognizes that giving the students material to master is the mental equivalent of giving them packages to carry. With only one package, they can make a lot of progress in a hurry. If they are loaded down with many, they stagger around, have a lot more trouble, and can?t get as far. And when they experience the mental equivalent of many packages dumped on them at once, they are squashed flat and can?t learn anything.

People learn by creating their own understanding. But that does not mean they must or even can do it without assistance. Effective teaching facilitates that creation by getting students engaged in thinking deeply about the subject at an appropriate level and then monitoring that thinking and guiding it to be more expert-like.

Students are not learning the basic concepts that enable experts rely on to organize and apply information. And they are not being aided in developing the mental framework ? the latticework ? they need to improve retrieval and application of knowledge. ?So it makes perfect sense,? Wieman writes, ?that they are not learning to think like experts, even though they are passing science courses by memorizing facts and problem-solving recipes.?

you?ve got to have multiple models because if you just have one or two that you?re using, the nature of human psychology is such that you?ll torture reality so that it fits your models, or at least you?ll think it does?

What is elementary, worldly wisdom? Well, the first rule is that you can?t really know anything if you just remember isolated facts and try and bang ?em back. If the facts don?t hang together on a latticework of theory, you don?t have them in a usable form. You?ve got to have models in your head. And you?ve got to array your experience both vicarious and direct on this latticework of models.

new ways of thinking are always built on the prior thinking of the individual, so if the educational process is to be successful, it is essential to take that prior thinking into account.

experts have lots of factual knowledge about their subject, which is hardly a surprise. But in addition, experts have a mental organizational structure that facilitates the retrieval and effective application of their knowledge. Third, experts have an ability to monitor their own thinking (?metacognition?), at least in their discipline of expertise. They are able to ask themselves, ?Do I understand this? How can I check my understanding??

this pedagogical strategy doesn?t positively impact retention of information from lecture, improve understanding basic concepts, or affect beliefs (that is, does new information change your belief about how something works).
