This breakout session unpacks what works best in engaging students in relevant and rigorous learning.  Blending the science of how we learn with classroom practice, participants will develop a tool kit for grabbing and maintaining student engagement at all three levels (behavioral, emotional, and cognitive) while at the same time increasing learning outcomes.  Practicing what we preach, participants will take part in an out-of-your-seat experience that models the promising principles from science of learning for deep thinking and understanding: simple to complex, concrete to abstract, and the idea that memory is the residue of thought. 

 By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) identify the essential components of an effective and engaging learning experience in STEM. 

(2) support instructional decisions with research from the science of learning.

(3) summarize the role of formative assessment and feedback in teaching and learning.
