Optimizing  your learning  of science and engineering

Over the past few decades a great deal has been learned about the thinking processes of experts, particularly scientists and engineers, and how learners can most efficiently develop those useful adaptive high-level thinking skills.  Most notable is the finding that such skills are developed, not innate, but quite specific mental processes are required for their development.  The research shows that much of what university students are told by their teachers as to how to best learn is not correct.   Dr. Wieman will discuss the nature of those expert thinking processes and how students can apply this research to guide and improve their own studying and learning.  After the discussion there will be time to ask lots of questions!
