While graduate students do not need to become experts in how students learn, a basic understanding of the research on learning can enable GSIs to make informed teaching decisions. Drawing on research findings from neuroscience, anthropology, and cognitive and social psychology, this workshop will enable GSIs to consider ways to apply research-based principles to the learning environments they create for their students.
This workshop fulfills a requirement of the Teaching Certificate Program.
If you intend for your participation in this workshop to count toward the Certificate Program, you must stay for the entire workshop.
This pre-registration form is for currently enrolled UC Berkeley graduate students. Others are welcome to attend on a space-available basis.
