Virtual Classroom Visit: Silas Pinto, Biological Bases of Behavior and Learning

These videos are part of an ongoing project by Phil Gay and David Hammer called Student Centered Teaching at Tufts. Videographers visit classes around campus to record faculty members in the process of teaching in their classrooms, and to hear each faculty member’s reflections afterward, as they observe themselves interacting with students.

Silas Pinto’s Biological Bases of Behavior and Learning class was captured in the Spring semester of 2017. Second year School Psychology students review and discuss two neuro-psychological testing instruments. The discussion centers around the nuances of how the brain processes and outputs information using two similar motor-integration tests. The approach, validity and cultural considerations are raised in the discussion.
