Anchor Session with Sarah Cavanagh

Honeybees, Social Neuroscience, & Team Dynamics: Lessons for Building Community
Sunday, November 17, 8:30–10:00 am

A sense of community in the classroom contributes to effective learning. While traditional pedagogical literature speaks to methods of building community within the classroom, we can also look outside our intellectual silos to other academic disciplines studying effective collaborative groups. In this interactive session, we'll consider powerful research investigating team dynamics in simulated space missions, the social neuroscience of how the brain embeds our social others in our very sense of self, and even how honeybees make collective decisions together. Through interactive activities, we will work together to understand and apply these lessons to the work of the classroom.
