Interactive Forum | Expectations for Student Learning in ECE

Monday, March 20
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

In this interactive session, participants will strategize about the goal of teaching and expectations for student learning in electrical and computer engineering (ECE).  The facilitators will present recent research on the neurobiology of learning to help participants understand how learning works. Finally, we will engage in a think, group, share activity about active learning techniques that are or can be used in ECE.  We will finish with participants suggesting ideas for topics at next year’s conference.
