An expert on human learning and behavior will discuss how students learn at the inaugural Broad Integrative Fellows Program lecture.
Robert Duke, professor and head of music and human learning at the University of Texas at Austin, will speak about how students learn, the changes in the physical structure of the brain that make learning possible, and how instruction can work with (rather than against) these principles. The lecture will be held, Friday, January 24, from 1:30–3 p.m. in the Business College Complex Room N100. All MSU faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend.
Duke’s research on human learning and behavior spans multiple disciplines, including motor skill learning, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience. His most recent work explores procedural memory consolidation and the cognitive processes engaged during musical improvisation.
The Broad Integrative Fellows Program seeks to enhance teaching and learning by developing integrative thinking across business disciplines.
