CTAAR is hosting two "Improving Education with the Science of Learning" workshops during the Fall 2019 semester. 

One reality unites educators across disciplines as diverse as Dance, Medicine, English and Engineering: the point of instruction is to ensure that students learn from our expertise. Fortunately, current neuroscience research on learning has established a common foundation that transcends content and setting.

Part 1 mines current research to explore how educators can design memorable learning experiences, how we can enhance student learning through practice, how we can make learning stick, how we can be aware of the myths about learning, and how we can create moments of metacognition to enhance understanding. We discuss the implications for education within various contexts and disciplines across Rutgers University. Note: This presentation was given previously in Spring 2019.

Part 2 follows up by delving deeper into the science of learning to focus on the impact of culture, beliefs, motivations, and mindset to learning. We will also explore the capacity and limitations of memory.

The results of the Spring 2019 Student Instructional Rating Surveys are now available at the SIRS Results web site.

A valid Rutgers NetID is required to view the SIRS results. 

Please note that the University Counsel has determined that posting Student Instructional Rating Survey information for Teaching Assistants must cease as of Fall 2004 because of the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99). Therefore no records for any Teaching Assistants will be available on this site. Department administrators who need to see complete SIRS data for their own unit, including TA data or Summer and Winter sessions, should use the SIRS Departmental Archive instead.
