Rethinking Current Educational Trends: Balancing Faculty Expertise, Innovative Pedagogy, and Student Learning

Research has shown time and again that active/engaged learning is beneficial. Faculty are often encouraged to: "include more active learning and lecture less," "stop encouraging passive learning," and "create classes where introverts feel comfortable talking." Although much research, time, and monetary support has gone into moving teaching strategies in these directions over the past 25 years, less attention has been paid to WHY certain pedagogical strategies enhance learning. In this session, we will consider carefully how to include active/engaged learning into long-standing teaching strategies. This session also examines multiple sides of current trends in higher education pedagogy and examines the pitfalls of dichotomous thinking when it comes to teaching strategies.
