Exploring The Neural Mechanisms Of Physics Learning, Jessica E. Bartley Nov 2018

Exploring The Neural Mechanisms Of Physics Learning, Jessica E. Bartley

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation presents a series of neuroimaging investigations and achievements that strive to deepen and broaden our understanding of human problem solving and physics learning. Neuroscience conceives of dynamic relationships between behavior, experience, and brain structure and function, but how neural changes enable human learning across classroom instruction remains an open question. At the same time, physics is a challenging area of study in which introductory students regularly struggle to achieve success across university instruction. Research and initiatives in neuroeducation promise a new understanding into the interactions between biology and education, including the neural mechanisms of learning and development. These ...

Submission Title and Descriptor for Review

States of Mind: Exploring “Energy Sources” to Support Thinking

Facing uncertainty, complex problems, and managing non-linear dynamical change are part of our existence. By examining the “States of Mind”—efficacy, craftsmanship, consciousness, flexibility, interdependence—we are able clarify thinking, encouraging divergence and resourcefulness. Aquire strategies to develop mindfulness and thinking dispositions. Participants will learn about the states of mind, design questions to engage thinking, and engage in collaborative dialogue. Explore and plan next steps for becoming more strategic in your capabilities to create positive thinking and adaptive change within yourself and those you interact ...
