Guest Speaker: Multitasking in 21st century learning

Guest Speaker Session: Multitasking in 21st century learning

Today, we are so honored to have another guest speaker– Dr. Eddie Watson.  Dr. Eddie Watson is the director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at UGA now. Before coming to UGA, Dr. Watson was the associate director of the Center for Instructional Development and Educational Research at Virginia Tech.  Most of Dr. Watson’s research is related to the topic about the collaboration across the boundaries of disciplines in order to create opportunities for professors and students in higher education to achieve the goals.  As we ll know, 21st century learners are very different.  Today Dr. Watson will lead us to unveil some of the myths about 21st century learners, especially the myth of multitasking.
