Research from the learning sciences and from a variety of educational settings suggests that a small number of key principles can improve learning in almost any type of college or university course, from traditional lectures to flipped classrooms. This workshop will introduce three of those principles, offer practical suggestions for how they might foster positive change in higher education teaching and learning, and invite participants to consider how they might apply them to their current or future teaching contexts.

James M. Lang, Professor of English and Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, is the author of five books and more than a hundred reviews or essays on topics ranging from higher education to British literature. Lang is familiar to academic audiences internationally through his monthly column in the Chronicle of Higher Education and his books on higher education: Life on the Tenure Track (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2005); On Course: A Week-by-Week Guide to your First Semester of College Teaching (Harvard University Press, 2008); Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard University Press, 2013); and Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons From the Science of Learning (Jossey-Bass, 2016).
