The Kent State University Faculty Professional
Development Center will hold its Fall 2013 Learning Institute
on Oct. 11 with discussions focused on ways to “Build a
Better Student.”

Kent State University’s Faculty Professional Development Center will host the Fall 2013 Learning Institute on Oct. 11 from 8:30-11 a.m. at the Moulton Hall Ballroom. Registration is required as space is limited. Refreshments will be provided.

John Dunlosky, professor of psychology and director of experimental training, Katherine Rawson, associate professor of psychology, and Christopher Was, associate professor of educational psychology, have examined the effectiveness of specific learning strategies that are commonly used by students. During the event, Dunlosky and Was will discuss this research and examine specific course structures that will allow faculty members to “Build a Better Student” in their classes. Rawson will lead a similar discussion during the spring semester.
