The Science of Learning

Unpacking Teaching/Learning During COVID-19

Join us for this free, three part, interactive, Teagle Foundation-supported faculty development series exploring topics related to the science of learning in the time of COVID. You can attend one or all of these sessions. Previous topics have included: strategies to address lack of motivation and engagement, effective methods for teaching and learning remotely, strategies for teaching during crisis and beyond.

Once you register for one or more sessions, you will receive a confirmation and a link to a SHORT survey determining the topics most of interest to you. Each monthly meeting responds directly to the pre-survey responses to offer content of interest to the cohort.   Information is applicable to faculty at all levels from any discipline.

Please share this faculty development event with your member institutions.  Your membership in ACL provides this benefit free of charge to your members.

Join with colleagues from institutions across the nation and the globe to learn how:

  • the brain responds to uncertainty and disruption and related strategies for teaching and learning in a precarious world 

  • to prepare for a world that will be different and how to help students with the transition 

  • to collaborate and support each other during this semester 

Session Structure:

  • Applying Principles of the Learning Sciences to Faculty Questions and Challenges (20 mins)

  • Going Deeper with Colleagues (25 mins in breakout sessions)

  • Sharing the Learning Across Conversations (15 minute debrief)


All sessions will be presented via Zoom. New dates have been established for our second and third sessions. Make sure to save the upcoming dates in your calendar! You will receive the Zoom link details in your registration confirmation email.

Session Three: Friday, May 21, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (ET)
