I’m proctoring a final exam for my Applications of Learning Theory class. Twenty students in a breezy classroom on the second floor of Gasson Hall. Everyone looks intent as I type; it’s interesting to notice when a student pauses, looks up to think, which direction their eyes dart. We’ve been discussing left- and right-brain learning in this class, among other learning styles, and the direction of your gaze when thinking is supposed to indicate your tendency of left- or right-brain.
Incredible ethnic diversity in this class; unusual for B.C. African American, Arab, Caucasian, Chinese American and Chilean.
I always hated taking exams when I was a student and I empathize with them.
