Presentation by Daniel Willingham: “The Meaning of ‘Research-Based’ in Education”

  • Location: Jody Richards Hall Auditorium
  • Time: 3:00pm

The WKU College of Education & Behavioral Sciences is excited to announce our 2018 REACH Week Speaker, Dr. Daniel Willingham. Dr. Willingham's talk, “The Meaning of ‘Research-Based’ in Education,” is open to the entire WKU community and the public.

Dr. Willingham’s work on the science of education has been featured in the New York Times and on Science Friday. Dr. Willingham earned his B.A. from Duke University in 1983 and his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Harvard University in 1990. He is currently Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia, where he has taught since 1992. Until about 2000, his research focused solely on the brain basis of learning and memory. Today, all of his research concerns the application of cognitive psychology to K-16 education. He writes the “Ask the Cognitive Scientist” column for American Educator magazine, and is the author of Why Don't Students Like School?, When Can You Trust the Experts?, Raising Kids Who Read, and The Reading Mind(2017). His writing on education has appeared in fifteen languages. In 2017, he was appointed by President Obama to serve as a Member of the National Board for Education Sciences.
 
This is a swipeable event for WKU students.
