Professor Robert Duke will discuss why formal education often fails to make substantive and lasting changes in how learners think and behave. Professor Duke will consider how to design learning experiences that lead to advantageous changes in cognition, affect, and behavior-all of which are key factors in student engagement.
 

Robert Duke is the Marlene and Morton Meyerson Centennial Professor and Head of Music and Human Learning at The University of Texas at Austin, where he is University Distinguished Teaching Professor, Elizabeth Shatto Massey Distinguished Fellow in Teacher Education, and Director of the Center for Music Learning.

 

His research on human learning and behavior spans multiple disciplines, including motor skill learning, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience. His most recent work explores procedural memory consolidation and the cognitive processes engaged during musical improvisation.
