Server or Cook? What Our Students Want and What We (Should) Do
Friday, September 20, 12-1:15pm, LCOM 405

One can feed people junk food and make them feel full- or nourish them and help them be healthy. A bad cook can start with something healthy and cook the nutrients right out of it. The same goes for teaching. Daniel’s presentation will discuss teachers’ goals and the need for them to seek out the best “ingredients” for their instructional objectives. Daniel will develop and discuss the essential role of the “cook” when developing a high-impact learning experience.

David P. Daniel, PhD, is a psychology professor at James Madison University and whose presentations focus on developing useable knowledge for educational practice, policy, and student learning. He has been honored numerous times for his teaching and translational efforts, including receiving the “Teaching Excellence Award” from the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.
