How variability in learning informs teaching in the 21st century

Led by L. Todd Rose

Modern research in the learning sciences (including neuroscience) has radically changed how we think about learning. Rejecting the myth of an average learner, this new approach to learning instead emphasizes the importance of variability and the role that context plays in shaping learning outcomes. This presentation will explore what the learning sciences tell us about the origins of variability, and what this means for the way that we design effective learning environments.
