We Need to Get Out of Our Own Way

Educations and education experts all seem to agree that we can and should change the way we educate, but why is this not happening more consistently? Why is it not happening consistently in higher education, event? My presentation will consist of an overview of innovative pedagogy with examples from my own teaching. Additionally, I will provide examples of how we are NOT achieving this. Why is this occurring and what can we do about it? We may not make all the rules, but we still have control over what we do in our classrooms. It’s time to quit blaming the “they” who won’t allow us to do what we know is right for learning and for our future students. Change begins with us.
