The Research Behind Learning and Teaching

This week we discussed learning and teaching with June Ahn, Ph.D student, focusing on Urban Education at USC.

We will be discussed learning and teaching and how educational research relates to the classroom.  We spend a fair amount of time discussing Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talks presentation that asks whether we are educating our students to be college professors.
