The University of Texas at Dallas’ 2004-2005 Seminar Series for Life-Long Learners will continue on Monday evening, Jan. 24, with a presentation by UTD faculty member Dr. Homer A. Montgomery on “Improving Education in Science Five Minutes at a Time.”

Montgomery, a paleontologist, will detail how five-minute classroom sessions, utilizing everyday objects found in the home or a hardware store, can grab students’ attention and improve scores on exams. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the School of Management Building, Room 1.118.
