Dr Leanne Ramer
Bridging the Gaps – Using the Science of Learning to support student success.
Dr. Leanne Ramer, senior lecturer at Simon Fraser University Faculty of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology invites you to consider what success looks like in your classroom. In this conversation she will examine emerging issues science and math students navigate as they transition from high school to post-secondary education. She will offer practical suggestions around how we might address these issues by applying current research on teaching and learning.
