Café Scientifique: Learning Science for Better Learning

Café Scientifique presents Learning Science for Better Learning: Simon Initiative. This Café Sci program will be presented by Dr. Marsha LovettDirector of the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University.

Many students today receive a 19th-century education that is developed without the benefit of contemporary evidence-based research, Carnegie Mellon University’s Dr. Marsha Lovett asserts. At Carnegie Science Center’s next Café Sci, Dr. Lovett discusses how a combination of education-based research plus innovations in educational technology can improve students’ learning outcomes while further advancing our scientific understanding of how learning works.

Carnegie Mellon University’s Simon Initiative focuses on leveraging these opportunities and making a difference for local and global learners. The Simon Initiative focuses on the learner and how to improve learning. Dr. Lovett is co-coordinator of The Simon Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University and the director of the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation. Her remarks will present recent results, tools, and examples of how educational theories are being applied.

The 21+ Learning Science for Better Learning: Simon Initiative will be held at Carnegie Science Center on Monday, May 4. Doors open at 6:00 pm. The program is from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. A cash bar will be available from 6:00 until 7:30 pm. Admission is free, but reservations are requested. RSVP online for Café Scientifique.
