SCFS Seminar Series 2019/20 kicks off with Dr Christian Krekel (LSE)
Assistant Professor in Behavioural Science
In its first session of the academic year, the School for Cross-faculty Studies Research and Pedagogy Seminar Series opened with a thought-provoking seminar on teaching deliberate practice across schools in Northern Macedonia, delivered by Dr Christian Krekel, Assistant Professor in Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The engaging talk showcased a randomised controlled trial among 34,000 pupils across Northern Macedonia. Dr Krekel highlighted the impacts as well as the unintended consequences of these low-cost and school-wide educational interventions on pupils effort and their interest in learning more generally.
The exciting programme of the Research and Pedagogy Seminar Series will resume again on 13th November with Dr Craig Morton (Loughborough University). Stay up to date through the seminar web page.
