How Learning Works Book Discussion
This spring, the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) focuses on principles of learning and practical strategies based on the well-received new book, How Learning Works (2010). Each month, participants will explore a chapter and its accompanying key question as they revise or re-affirm their own understanding of how learning works. Participants who commit to attending all four sessions by January 15th will receive a free copy of the book. Notify Cheryl Jones, CIPD Program Associate, of your commitment and she will deliver your copy by February 1st. Please note, registration is required for each date and seating is limited.
All Spring Workshops in the Series will run from 1:00 – 3:00 PM in Library West Wing Rm W301
