Note: This workshop has already taken place. See the workshop program for links to presentations, discussions, and other material from the workshop, and the workshop synthesis for a summary of key ideas.
Join us for a workshop that will bring together faculty teaching about time with researchers studying temporal learning to
- Understand current best practice in teaching about time,
- Bring forward ideas from education and cognitive psychology that can inform improved practice, and
- Work together in ways that support improved teaching about time.
