Designing for How Learning Happens

One of the most important questions when designing learning environments is: How does learning happen and how can we best support it? Luckily there is extensive cognitive, neurological, and psychological research that has unearthed largely agreed-upon insights about learning. This workshop will engage participants in active learning, discussion, and application of some of these insights, specifically those related to the roles that factors like cognition, identity, and others play in learning.
