LITE Work in Progress (WiP) seminar: How can help students understand those difficult (threshold) concepts?

Nimesh Mistry, School of Chemistry

The aim of this seminar is: to encourage colleagues to consider and discuss what mental models and schemas students may have in place prior to a course they teach, what impact this will have in the students’ ability to learn or accept new concepts, and how active/flipped pedagogies could help to achieve improved conceptual understanding.

Time: 12:30pm

Venue: Edward Boyle library , research room 1

This series of lunch-time talks captures a small selection of the innovative pedagogic research and projects currently being undertaken on campus. They also provide a forum for discussion and networking, and are open to all.
