Evidence-Based Approaches to Teaching Neuroscience
Organizer/Moderator: R. Olivio & M. Linden
Monday, Nov 13, 2017, 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., Convention Center 207A
This year's workshop on teaching neuroscience will review evidence-based practices that have been shown to improve student learning. Amy Chang, Director of Education for the American Society for Microbiology, will summarize validated instructional strategies. Lee Zia (NSF), David Asai (HHMI), and Brian Couch (Nebraska) will discuss implementing these proven approaches to good teaching, and Dan Willingham (Virginia) will review practices that students themselves can use to improve their own learning.

Improving Your Science: Sample-Size Planning, Pre-Registration, and Reproducible Data Analysis

Organizer/Moderator: R. Calin-Jageman
Monday, Nov 13, 2017, Noon - 2:00 p.m., Convention Center 207B
This workshop introduces three emerging best practices to improve the rigor and reproducibility of neuroscience research: 1) sample size planning, 2) pre-registration, and 3) the Project Tier protocol for conducting reproducible data analysis. Each discussion will provide a rapid overview of the topic (30 minutes) but will include resources and tips for advancing towards mastery. The workshop will end with a 30-minute open-ended discussion. After the meeting, download all the materials here: https://osf.io/5awp4/
