Joan Middendorf on Overcoming Student Learning Bottlenecks

February 23, 2018 @ 1pm PT

In this webinar, Dr. Katie Linder hosts a conversation with Stylus author Joan Middendorf to discuss her new book, Overcoming Student Learning Bottlenecks, co-authored with Leah Shopkow.

Decoding the Disciplines is a widely-used and proven methodology that prompts teachers to identify the bottlenecks – the places where students get stuck – that impede learners’ paths to expert thinking in a discipline. The process is based on recognizing the gap between novice learning and expert thinking, and uncovering tacit knowledge that may not be made manifest in teaching.

This is a book for faculty who want their students to develop disciplinary forms of reasoning, and are moreover interested in a methodology with the potential to transform and reinvigorate their teaching. It is particularly suitable for use in communities of practice, and should be indispensable for any one engaged in cross-disciplinary teaching, as it enables co-teachers to surface each other’s tacit knowledge and disciplinary assumptions.
