In this episode, we dive into another chapter of How Learning Works, this time exploring the importance of organizing student experiences. CTLT’s Julie-Ann McFann joins Jim Gee at the microphone to talk about about learning, leaping, and… Wile E. Coyote? Learn how concept or mind maps can help students organize their experiences for deep, critical thinking.

It’s a big topic. Look for the second part of this discussion coming soon!
