VITAL Video Interactions in teaching and Learning

Presentation: VITAL at Adult Development

Herb Ginsburg and Michael Preston presented a poster on VITAL as "an innovative Web system for enhancing adults' critical thinking skills" at the annual symposium of the Society for Research in Adult Development. From the abstract: "We focus in particular on changing adult thinking, and not only on providing instruction in a particular content area or skill set. Specifically, we are developing a method to help prospective teachers (or any university student) connect what they learn from books and lectures with their personal experiences, and to gather real-world data, think critically about it, and make potentially better decisions."
