Learning theories and the Science of Learning

This workshop is designed for educators who would like to deepen their understanding of learning theories and how such theories can be applied to their daily education practice.

The practice of health professions education is complex and challenging. This workshop will help educators broaden their insights and perspectives on the challenges they face in their educational practice by establishing a foundational understanding of how theories of learning can inform their approaches to teaching and learning.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to describe some key theories of learning used in health professions education.  Participants will also be able to apply select theories of learning to address common challenges in education practice.
