Join Dr. James M. Lang for his Keynote presentation Teaching Distracted Minds. Faculty frequently express concerns about the distractibility of students, but our real focus should be on how we help students achieve attention. Lang draws upon scholarship from history, neuroscience, and education in order to argue that distractions are endemic to the human condition, and can’t be walled out of the physical classroom or online course. He suggests that, instead of fighting distraction, we should focus on creating educational experiences that cultivate and sustain attention. Participants will learn about a variety of potential pathways to developing such experiences for their students.
