If evidence for changing pedagogies is so clear, then why do my colleagues keep teaching the same way?

Dec. 9, 2011 at 2pm ET - free to all.  

Guests: Scott Simkins, Director, Academy of Teaching and Learning, North Carolina A & T State University

Recent books such as Academically Adrift suggest that traditional teaching practices result in "limited learning" for large numbers of students, while evidence mounts that using research-based, interactive-engagement teaching practices increases student learning. So why don't more faculty members adopt these more effective teaching practices? We'll make use of recent research to help us better understand why many faculty members fail to make changes to their teaching practices despite evidence that it would benefit students.

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.
