How much would you trust a physician, engineer, athletic coach, or nurse who did not keep up with and apply lessons from relevant research in his or her field?
Or one who could not apply basic principles of good practice to new situations, with new client populations, or in using new technologies?
Probably not much.
Yet many faculty and academic administrators remain (relatively) unaware of current research — in psychology, cognitive science, and education — on teaching, learning, and assessment and on its relevance to our daily practice.
This interactive session will explore seven research-based guidelines and provide examples of simple, powerful applications to improve teaching, assessment, and student learning in and beyond our (virtual and actual) classrooms.
