Keynote Address "The New Science of Learning"

Our Keynote Speaker will be Terry Doyle, author, educational consultant and professor of reading at Ferris State University for the past 37 years. From 1998 to spring of 2009 he was the Senior Instructor for Faculty Development and Coordinator of the New to Ferris Faculty Transition Program for the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning at Ferris State University.

Terry has presented over seventy-five workshops on teaching and learning topics at regional, national and international conferences and has worked with faculty on one hundred and twenty different colleges and universities around the world over the past several years. His presentations focus on ways to assist higher education faculty in becoming learner centered teachers and how faculty can apply new findings from neuroscience, biology and cognitive science in their teaching to improve students’ learning.

He is the author of three books that focus on the application of neuroscience, biology and cognitive science to teaching and learning.  The first is Helping Students Learn in a Learner Centered Environment: A Guide to Teaching in Higher Education, published by Stylus, 2008.  His 2011 book is titled Learner Centered Teaching: Putting the Research into Practice published by Stylus and was featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education's Selected New Books in Higher Education in 2012  His  most recent book published in August 2013, co-authored with Dr. Todd Zakrajsek and written for college students, is The New Science of Learning: How to Learn in Harmony with Your Brain also by Stylus.
