Mathematics Education Seminar • The Curse of Knowledge in LearningExport this event to calendar

Thursday, January 17, 2019 — 10:30 AM EST

Dan Wolczuk, Faculty of Mathematics
University of Waterloo

In educational psychology, the curse of knowledge refers to the phenomenon that individuals inherently assume that the people they are communicating with have the same knowledge and thought processes as they do. 

In this seminar, we will discuss how the curse of knowledge can affect both instructors and students, and we will look at some strategies that instructors can use to try to counteract this and improve student learning.
