This session is part of the Dean’s Seminar series, in which faculty from the VCU School of Business present a one-hour lunchtime lecture on either research or teaching.
In this seminar, Stephen proffered the basic economic insight that when we teach, we must set goals and seek to attain those goals in the most efficient way possible. He then involved attendees in several classic experiments from educational psychology to show that peoples’ information processing abilities are scarce (cognitive load) and that in order to process large amounts of information, people make meaning of it using a schema (or prior belief). He then led a discussion of teaching best practices that we can glean from their psychological principles.
