Can brain research tell us what we should be doing in the classroom? How can long term retention be increased? What adult learning and professional development principles are key to student success?

In this session, PSU Professors Randy Zelick (Biology), John Olmsted (Psychology), and Christine Cress (Education), review recent research in their fields that can help us to better understand human learning. After their panel presentation, participants discuss implications for classroom practice.
