    Building Memory with Science and Senses - Put on Your Thinking Cap (EP:19) 

    With  Stella Collins, MSc. 

    Creating effective learning can be complicated – from our biology to our environment, there are a lot of elements that influence outcomes. And how can we get our learners curious anyway, especially in our increasingly digital spaces? Grab a hat and put it on (we mean it…. we’ll wait while you go get it)  because in this episode, celebrated author and science-based learning thinker, Stella Collins, joins Stacy Craft to explore learning and the brain, memory, the powers of sensory experiences, avoiding stagnation, community, and why there is a group of people who think “Brains!” when they bite into a bar of chocolate. We also take time to unpack the LEARNS strategy for designing and providing education that people will remember.

    Connecting with Learners – Learner Centered Approaches (EP:18)

    Connecting with Learners - Learner Centered Approaches (EP:18)

    With  Dr. Cheryll Albold, Ph.D. 

    Learner-Centered instructional approaches ask educators to shift their focus from traditional, teacher-centric approaches, where instructors push information at learners, to one that asks learners to actively co-create knowledge and participate in their learning. This transition from "Sage on the Stage" to "Guide on the Side" is not always a simple one and requires that educators connect with their learners.  In this episode, Stacy Craft chats with Dr. Cheryll Albold, an assistant professor of medical education in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science and Administrator and Designated Institutional Administrator for the Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education, about why connecting with learners is so important, principles and foundations for learner-centered approaches, and pedagogically-sound practices and simple design recommendations to help you start incorporating more learner-centered strategies in your education

    Problem Based Learning and Team Based Learning – Your New Educational Super Strategy (EP:16)

    Problem Based Learning and Team Based Learning - Your New Educational Super Strategy (EP:16)

    With Diana Dolmans, PhD.

    From workplace training to higher education settings, team based small group activities around problems are a staple. However, when we talk about the models of Team Based Learning vs Problem based Learning, how these interact, differ, where they come from, as well as how to implement them meaningfully, we can sometimes get lost. This can get especially complex when we move these strategies to a virtual environment. In this episode, Stacy Craft talks with esteemed Professor and researcher in the field of innovative learning arrangements Dr. Diana Dolmans from Maastricht University, the Netherlands to shed light on these complex topics as well as help us navigate new spaces that re-envision how we use these principles and translate them into practice.
