Please join President Mantella, Provost Fatma Mili, and Kara Van Dam, Vice Provost for Graduate and Lifetime Learning for a conversation with Bror Saxberg. We will dig into what we know about learning and motivation from decades of research and share how insights can guide new learning approaches. The biological basis of learning and motivation work as they always have, even as technologies (including AI) accelerate. We'll talk about how, as our understanding of learning and motivation improves, we gain by seeking and iterating compatible solutions from the technologies around us.
