How Learning Happens by Paul Kirschner and Carl Hendrick

Passionate about integrating the science of learning into your pedagogical practice? Join Jim Hewitt and Nidhi Sachdeva for this engaging book study of selected chapters from How Learning Happens by Paul Kirschner and Carl Hendrick.


We will focus on six theoretical foundations from the Science of Learning and examine how we can design more effective instruction by better understanding the cognitive processes that take place when learning occurs.


Come prepared to contribute to the breakout room discussions and to participate in the question and answer portion of the sessions. How Learning Happens is available for purchase on Amazon, Indigo and Caversham Booksellers. (Please note, we are not affiliated with any publishing companies or suppliers.)
