How Students Learn? Implications for Computer-Assisted Learning

2:10-3 PM, TUESDAY, OCT 3, 2017
CTLT'S TEACHING AND LEARNING COMMONS, 35-209

Campus educators are invited to a guest lecture on computer-assisted learning by Edward E Anderson, the Texas Piper Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University. Anderson is a Ray Butler Distinguished Educator and a Chancellor’s Council Distinguished Teacher. His scholarship examines the use of artificial intelligence systems to diagnose student learning, provide instantaneous individualized feedback and offer embedded activities that retain student interest. His presentation will elaborate research findings for the seven principles of learning, and introduce a new project involving knowledge networks and artificial intelligence as applied to early, high attrition engineering knowledge.

Lecture is free; no registration necessary.
