Food Science Education and the Cognitive Science of Learning
Chew, Stephen L.
Journal of Food Science Education, v13 n4 p65-67 Oct 2014
In this essay, I argue that the traditional view of teaching, that the teacher's responsibility is to present information that students are solely responsible for learning, has been rendered untenable by cognitive science research in learning. The teacher can have a powerful effect on student learning by teaching not only content, but how to study and think about information. Student learning is a shared responsibility between teacher and students, and effective teaching is much more challenging than traditionally believed.
