How do we help our students to engage in deep processing in the cognitive
domain? What is expertise and how do we help students develop it? How does
students' prior attitudes and beliefs in themselves as learners impact their
future learning? How does their level of cognitive development change their
learning and what effect might it have on the teacher?
The session will attempt to address these question by presenting some
interesting ideas, findings, evidence, shaky theories, and good questions
from the teaching and learning literature.
The session structure will be 55 minutes of presentation from the teaching
and learning literature and then 30 minutes for activities and follow-up
