What do the best university and college educators do to captivate and motivate students, to help them reach unusually high levels of accomplishment? What can the learning sciences tell us about helping people learn? For the past fourteen years we have looked at these questions in a comprehensive study of highly successful educators from across the country. This highly-interactive institute (June 27-29. 2001) on the Northwestern University campus on the North Shore outside Chicago will allow a limited number of participants to explore the major findings of the study and their possible application to their own teaching. The program will feature some of the professors who were the subject of the study. The study was directed by historian and educator, Ken Bain.
