Pooja Agarwal "Unleash the Science of Learning: Transform Teaching with Strategies from Cognitive Science"

We are excited to welcome our special guest presenter, Pooja Agarwal, Ph.D, who will be sharing some fantastic information about the brain and memory! This is guaranteed to challenge all of our brains! She will be providing information about “retrieval practice” which is a learning strategy where you focus on getting information OUT of students' heads rather than trying to get it IN!

Webinar Description:
"Unleash the Science of Learning: Transform Teaching with Strategies from Cognitive Science"
There is a lot to learn in the world. Students can’t learn everything, and educators can’t teach everything. Especially not over, and over, and over again each time students forget. What can we do to improve learning and reduce forgetting? How can we use our limited amount of classroom time and make learning stick? Based on more than 100 years of research, cognitive scientists have established powerful strategies that substantially improve learning for diverse age groups, subject areas, and education rigor. In this workshop, Assistant Professor and Cognitive Scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D., goes behind the scenes and illuminates key discoveries, teaching strategies, and classroom resources based on the science of learning. Armed with evidence-based strategies, it’s time to challenge our perceptions of learning and transform teaching in our classrooms.

Pooja Agarwal, Ph.D. is an expert in the field of cognitive science. She has conducted learning and memory research in a variety of classroom settings for more than 10 years. Passionate about evidence-based education, Pooja has extensive teaching experience in K-12 and higher education, as well as expertise in education policy at state and national levels. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, teaching psychological science to exceptional undergraduate musicians. Pooja leads, a hub of cognitive science research, resources, and tips for educators. Pooja's research is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, her work has been featured in the New York Times, Education Week, and Scientific American, as well as academic journals, books, and podcasts.
