"Teaching Distracted Minds" by James Lang

Dr. James Lang (author of Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus and What You Can Do About It) draws upon scholarship from history, neuroscience, and education in order to argue that distractions are endemic to the human condition, and can’t be walled out of the physical classroom or online course. He suggests we should focus on creating educational experiences that cultivate and sustain attention. For more information and to register, please visit the Event Page.
