A New Vision for Teaching through Deeper Learning

Meet the Expert

Deeper learning refers to the understanding and use of complex content knowledge as it is applied to new contexts and situations. Curriculum, instruction, and assessment focused on deeper learning needs to be aligned to support students’ development of skills —including collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving — required by life in the 21st century. Strategies that facilitate deeper learning for students shift both the role of the teacher and student learning, and the structures and systems that need to be in place to make this happen.

 Learning and the Brain:

Applying Learning Sciences for Deeper Reasoning, Retention, and Reflection.

 The Westin Copley Place, Boston, MA
November 22-24, 2019

Today’s knowledge-based, rapidly changing world requires that students have deeper knowledge, skills, and competencies in order to succeed at work and life. But how should schools promote deeper learning skills, such as problem solving, critical thinking, reasoning, inquiry, reflection, retention, transfer, and mastery? Fortunately, insights from the brain and learning sciences are providing the most effective ways to teach and learn these skills. 

Join us for our 20th anniversary event to explore the science of learning and deeper learning. Discover how the brain learns, ways to teach students how to learn, and strategies to make learning stick. Learn new ways to improve student reflection, reasoning, and critical thinking skills; engage deeper learning and reading through science, digital tools, gaming, projects, and problem-based learning; and deepen content knowledge and mastery by boosting retrieval practice and memory retention.
