Could embodied cognition improve students’ academic performance?

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, faculty within the chemistry department at Miami University are committed to the concept of embodied cognition, learning about things like atomic movement, by recreating the movement yourself. Spinning, vibrating, and match-making around the classroom. The results so far? Students in these classrooms are scoring 30 points above the national average.

The takeaway? How do we stay up to date with the latest pedagogical research to make sure we’re utilizing all aspects of cognition to improve our students’ learning?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
