Why is it Difficult for Students to Learn the Content in Your Field? | Faculty Focus | Teaching strategies for the college classroom | Scoop.it

Often we, as faculty, can’t understand why students think the courses we’re teaching are hard. We forget why we fell in love with the content of our discipline. It was clear and obvious to us right from the start. Calculus was easy, essays all but wrote themselves, and we couldn’t wait to learn more about this fascinating field. How could this be so difficult for students?

How We Learn

How We Learn | Teaching strategies for the college classroom | Scoop.it

The more I read books like How We Learn (Carey), Make it Stick The Science of Successful Learning (Brown, Roediger & McDaniel), and The New Science of Learning (Doyle & Zakrajsek), the more convinced I am that graduate schools should require future professors, across disciplines, to complete one course on "how people learn"

Open Educational Resources - Babson Survey Research Group

Open Educational Resources - Babson Survey Research Group | Teaching strategies for the college classroom | Scoop.it
Awareness of open educational resources (OER) among U.S. higher education teaching faculty has improved, but still remains less than a majority, according to a new report from the Babson Survey Research Group. Survey results, using responses of over 3,000 faculty, show that OER status is not a driving force in the selection of educational materials – with the most cited barrier being the effort required to find and evaluate such materials. While use of open resources is low overall, it is somewhat higher among large enrollment introductory-level courses.
