Overcoming Apathy & "Overcoming Apathy" & "How Students Learn" no such thingHow Students Learn as learning styles - they have learning preferences “If there is no cognition there is no learning” attention in the process - no hook, then you dont have them! cognitive neurosciences, the way the brain grows and develops. As we do stuff we get better and better at it. social neuroscience, interactions change us physically. humans have connections, we work with one another and develop the contagion. we influence each others levels. I have enough information then I get brain overload. When marking, when do we really stop reading? How do we move from novice to expert? how do the details actually bring the beauty to the topic? we need to find the details, whats the key component that makes it interesting? we need to teach our students how to learn - they dont know how to learn in our discipline. Teachers teach by thinking, we dont teach that. nobody teaches us how. the pedagogical stuff is its own thing- the theory has been investigated, all learning needs to be investigated.
