Abstract: In this session, we will explore seven basic principles of learning in undergraduate and graduate education, because learning results from what students do, and only what students do; our impact as educators is in creating the conditions to engage students in the process that leads to learning. Our discussion will include translation of the principles into practice in the design and teaching of courses, labs, studios, and other educational experiences.

Ambrose is an internationally recognized expert in college-level teaching and learning and has conducted workshops and seminars for faculty and administrators throughout the United States and around the world. She focuses on translating research to practice in the design of curricula, courses and educational experiences for both undergraduate and graduate students. Dr. Ambrose is co-author of five books, the most recent (January 2020) is titled Higher Education’s Road to Relevance: Navigating Complexity (Wiley/Jossey-Bass). Her last book, How Learning Works: Seven Research-based Principles for Smart Teaching (Jossey-Bass, 2010), has been widely praised for integrating fundamental research in the learning sciences and practical application.
