Keynote (Day 1) : How Learning Happens: What does science have to do with it? | Math Conference 2023

Speaking: Em. prof. dr. Paul A. Kirschner, dr.h.c.

Participants will learn what learning is, what the basics of our cognitive architecture are (how our brains receive and process information and how it is stored as knowledge) and what helps and hinders learning. We will then discuss a number of guiding principles for effective, efficient, and enjoyable (i.e., successful) learning as well as a few principles often used in math, that have time and again been shown not to work.
