1. Some say that the human brain is the new frontier in education. How does the content of Chapter 3 change your thinking about brain-based learning?
2. Skinner and Robert Gagne made significant contributions to understanding learning. Choose and defend the contribution of one of these theorists who you believe is most useful in developing best practices in your current role in your workplace.
3. A Major issue with information-processing theory is the development of metacognitive skills. What do you do to help your students develop these skills?
4. An important construct in Albert Bandura\’s social-cognitive learning theory is self-efficacy. Bandura identified seven effects of low self-efficacy. Think of a student from your own experience who exhibited low self-efficacy while facing a difficult task. Describe the specific manifestations of that student that reflected Bandura\’s low self-efficacy effects.
5. Student motivation is a critical component of academic success, What can you do differently in your current role in your workplace to ensure greater student motivation?
6. Discuss your personal philosophy of human learning. The goal is for you to have the opportunity to formulate your own personal view of learning. This view or vision statement will serve as a guide for your future practice/role in a teaching setting. You may draw upon any theory, idea, topic we cover in class. Please note, I am much more interested in seeing how you will relate a theory, idea, or topic to your vision/philosophy of teaching or mentoring than in seeing how much you know about any one theory, idea, or topic.
