Nate Kornell PhD, Associate Professor at Williams College, will present a talk titled Learning is from Mars, student perceptions of learning are from Venus

"People learn more when they engage in productive struggle than when learning is easy. Students often think the opposite, that they have learned less when they have been made to struggle. This research suggests that students are not always reliable judges of how much they have learned. I will discuss this research as well as research on a related question: Do the best teachers get the best ratings from their students?"
