Upcoming Webinar for J-WEL Members: The Science of Learning with Jeff Dieffenbach

" "


We are pleased to announce a webinar offering for J-WEL members, entitled “The Science of Learning," to be held twice this month - Thursday, November 8 and Friday, November 16. Both webinars will run from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Eastern US Time. 


Webinar Description

Jeff Dieffenbach, Associate Director of the MIT Integrated Learning Initiative (MITili), will share the latest research on the science of learning with the J-WEL community. MITili funds, connects, and disseminates transformational MIT research investigating learning effectiveness across pK-12, higher education, and workplace learning.

During the webinar, Jeff will introduce the idea of the science of learning, then share a series of specific findings. In a mix of breakout and full group conversations, we will discuss examples of where participants have delivered or seen examples of these findings. We will also brainstorm on how some of these findings might be used to create future learning experiences.
