Understanding and Working with Student Resistance to Active Learning

Dec. 16, 2011 at 2pm ET - free to all.  

Guests: Anton Tolman, Utah Valley University

As faculty move towards implementation of more learner-centered teaching methods, they are sometimes dismayed by the students' reactions.  Students often resist more active teaching methods, behavior that seems counter-productive to their own long-term interests.  This session will focus on describing an integrated theoretical model of student resistance to active teaching based on four major interdependent elements including situational factors, negative classroom experiences, cognitive development, and readiness to change; the model also incorporates the work of Carol Dweck on mindsets.  New instruments to measure student readiness to change will also be described as part of suggestions on how faculty can utilize the resistance model to better understand their students and develop more effective interventions.  

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
