The annual Frontier Forum lecture series was created in 1980 to encourage scholarly exchange of research among faculty, students and the community. The Forum provides an environment for sharing and stimulating discussion on scholarly interdisciplinary research, contemporary issues and the ideas from the disciplines in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Presented by Dr. Karla Lassonde
Were you curious about bugs or space as a child? Intellectual curiosity makes learning easy. When we are curious we are highly motivated to learn all we can about a subject. Traditional teaching and learning environments may strongly emphasis learning vast amounts of material, yet learners often lack motivation and curiosity. In addition, students are not taught the cognitive skills related to memory and attention that would make them more successful learners.
