Who do you depend on to help in a disaster? Firefighters? Health Department? Search and Rescue? In a disaster, you count on numerous trained professionals.
Are we training our emergency preparedness workers in an optimal way?
Interdisciplinary researchers at the University of Minnesota: Simulations, Exercises and Effective Education Preparedness and Emergency Response Research and Learning Centers (U-SEEE
PERRC and PERL) have collaborated to research this question.
Converging with the Centers’ search for effective and efficient training methodologies is the work of Dr. Susan Ambrose. Ambrose has extensively researched teaching and learning, integrating fundamental research in psychology and cognitive science with practical application. Ambrose will briefly describe seven research-based principles that underlie how learning works, and connect them to approaches that maximize learning. Learn how “smart teaching” applies to you!
- To identify one or more of the described teaching principles.
- To describe how the “smart teaching” principles are connected to teaching and learning in the context of emergency preparedness.
Susan A. Ambrose, DA, an internationally recognized scholar in college-level teaching and learning, is the vice provost for teaching and learning and professor of education at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
She has received numerous research grants from sources including the National Science Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Alcoa Foundation.
Ambrose is the co-author of the book, “How Learning Works: 7 Research- Based Principles for Smart Teaching.”
